Are you sure it isn't the debt payments to Social Security that's in the general fund? Social Security is comprised of four trust funds.

We should increase the retirement age to 70 so that more people would die before they could receive benefits?

If there is a group of people collecting the spouse benefit, it's probably housewives. This population is decreasing. A meager 50% is not liveable in today's economy. Widows who stayed at home are one of the lowest lowest income populations. If a spouse has worked outside the home, s/he can choose his/his own benefit or the spouse benefit, but not both,

When seniors retire, they open up the job market for younger employees.

The library was voted in by a majority. You must be in the minority on the library, Sam. I do agree that the loudest voices often represent a minority opinion.

If Congress would pay the interest on the loan from Social Security instead of tryng to renege, the trust funds would be in better shape.

Interesting idea. Simulations would have to be set up for a while to see a pattern.
