That's preposterous. Scalia wrote the decision in Kyllo v. United States where use of thermal imaging was declared in violation of the 4th Amendment.

He also dissented in another 4th Amendment case, County of Riverside v. McLaughlin where the majority decision weakened protections.

Exhaustion of the trust fund is NOT the end of SS. There is still enough income to pay some 3/4 of the benefit just from ongoing receipts assuming that there is no change in the current law.

Usually what happens when there are issues like this on the table is the law is changed; on such change is the idea you suggested.

The real issue is Medicare funding. The ACA helps a little with that, but there will be more and fairly drastic changes needed for that.
