For The Inept President of the United States.

Hey Mr President, you want suggestions, here is one,but I doubt that you will take it.

Perfect answer to saving the Social Security System,
Stop Abortions, and enough money will be generated in the SS system to keep it going for hundreds of years, as long as the government does not continue to rape the system, and move it into the General Fund so that they can spend more to get votes.
Abortion in the United States
Incidence of Abortion
49% of pregnancies among American women are unintended; almost half of these are terminated by abortion.
In 2000, 1.31 million abortions took place, down from an estimated 1.36 million in 1996. From 1973 through 2000, more than 39 million legal abortions occurred.
Each year, 2 out of every 100 women aged 15–44 have an abortion; 48% of them have had at least one previous abortion and 61% have had a previous birth.
An estimated 43% of women will have at least one abortion by the time they are 45 years old.
Each year, an estimated 46 million abortions occur worldwide. Of these, 20 million procedures are obtained illegally.
Who Has Abortions
52% of U.S. women obtaining abortions are younger than 25: Women aged 20–24 obtain 33% of all abortions, and teenagers obtain 19%.
Black women are more than three times as likely as white women to have an abortion, and Hispanic women are two-and-a-half times as likely.
43% of women obtaining abortions identify themselves as Protestant, and 27% identify themselves as Catholic.
Two-thirds of all abortions are among never-married women.
More than 60% of abortions are among women who have had one or more children.
On average, women give at least three reasons for choosing abortion: three-fourths say that having a baby would interfere with work, school, or other responsibilities; about two-thirds say they cannot afford a child; and half say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner.
About 13,000 women have abortions each year following rape or incest.
Contraceptive Use
54% of women having abortions used a contraceptive method during the month they became pregnant.
8% of women having abortions have never used a method of birth control; nonuse is greatest among those who are young, unmarried, poor, black, Hispanic, or poorly educated.
Nine in ten women at risk of unintended pregnancy are using a contraceptive method.
49% of the 6.3 million pregnancies that occur each year are unplanned.
As much as 43% of the decline in abortion between 1994 and 2000 can be attributed to the use of emergency contraception.
