This isn't recent news but noteworthy nonetheless. This is a quote from Paul Ryan on April 6, 2011.
So, this quote is almost 6 years old, and I think the long-term outlook has improved since then. Still, there is a Y2K38 bug that will occur on January 19, 2038, which seems like a "bad omen".
I'm trying to be proactive and positive here. How can the system continue as is after 2037?
