    The question is: who will "blink" first? Notice that this is happening as the US is in the Election run-up and the Candidates for President are NOT mentioning this in their campaigns... At least I'm not reading about it in the MSM or in my list of alternative news sources.

    It almost sounds like Trump is going to give in.

    This is a pretty major concern. I personally know several people who are "owed" quite a large pension and I doubt any of them would be happy if it fails.

    i know that i wouldn't enjoy it if my retirement failed. Especially seeing how that i haven't been able to put any money back.because of that.i don't expect any different from other's.

    Just think of all the retired infantry guys with PTSD getting a letter in the mail saying the money is all gone. That might be the beginning of the end for this country.
