This.

As the trouble is hitting right now, and there are going to be some benefit cuts to Boomers, because they're living too long and had too few kids. If there are not enough taxpayers to pay for all the goodies, and there isn't enough capital elsewhere willing to pay for the goodies, then goodies are going to be cut.

I think it's going to morph from "social insurance" to an outright welfare program for seniors.
