No, what rot!
Unless a person is incapacitated, they cannot sign up to receive Social Security until they are 62.
The official expected age is 67½. 
There are no plans to execute citizens or anyone, you ignorant flake!

This is not what she meant. She meant that if you divided the number of citizens & taxpayers into the National Dept, that would be their share.
However, it does NOT mean that we owe the government this amount.
The Biden Open Border Disaster.
Who is going to pay for it ??    This morning the U.S. was 31.8 Trillion in the red.
Adams says that NYC has spent over 5 Billion housing 70,000 wetbacks.
Half of the motel rooms there are full & NY is paying double for each room.
That is the tip of the iceberg.    What about 700,000 ?   And then 7 Million??
That is just for Sanctuary City NYC.    What about all the others??

You really haven't thought this game through, have you?

"WE" do not owe anyone with regard to the national debt.

The US government owes money to its creditors. Who are they? A majority are American citizens and corporations.
If I own shares in FSHBK, Fidelity Short Term Bond Fund, then I indirectly own US government Treasury Bonds.
For the past year to date, I would get a princely  0.36% interest.

Star Trek Next Generation series had an episode on that topic of euthanaisa at 65. in the late 1990's.

the future is now and anything is possible to happen that hasn't occurred already. Every new event sets the legal precedent for the day after.

If the US defaults, pretty much everyone will give a huge ****, you ignorant dimwit.
The money in your accounts will be worth less, and the price of everything you buy will rise.

The issue is that the tax structure is flawed. The ultra rich do not pay their fair share.

This country wasted tons of money attempting to educate you, for example. You didn't win any wars and you are still an ignorant bigot.
What a dumb remark by YOU..

We have a spending problem
Not a tax problem

Wealthy people pay about 1/2 of this countries bills

We take in around 4 Trillion/yr.
More than any other nation on Earth.
We don't have an incoming revenue problem.
We have a spending problem.
The Socialist-Dems incessantly scream, "Spend More Money" !!!
That is the American financial problem.
And it seems that the disease is metastasizing.                :cry:
