TOLFA Segment 7, Question 9

It's all very well saying that $1.5 trillion a year in redistribution should not take place. But what about the millions of people dependent on such money - Social Security recipients, for example? Obviously that is the flaw in all of this. There's no way millions can be left to starve; blood would run in the streets. What's done is done, it's fixed and can never change.
There must be some kind of transition program; cancel the SS for those under 45 (say) and wind it down progressively for those older.
There will still be the same amount of money around (more, in fact.) So it's just a matter of finding a way to bail out those who would otherwise suffer.
Hardship or not, theft is theft and it must stop, period.

Don't hurry away; even when you've got the right answer, try clicking on the others to see why they are wrong! Then when you have correctly answered this make notes in your student notebook, return to the Segment 7 Page.
