Add comment on:Stealing your Social Security with a budget based on lies
We are witnessing a bi-partisan effort to destroy a self-sustaining program that has survived for 70 years, in spite of periodic "borrowing" by the general fund of the US government. Maybe it's time to call in those debts, rather than cut back our coverage. Social Security is just not an "entitlement", paid at will by the government. It is insurance paid with premiums deducted from your paycheck. Those deductions never were intended to lumped in with the rest of the federal budget.
