    There is NOTHING in the Social Security "Bank", nothing except IOU's.

    Congress has been "borrowing" it for years to pay for all the stuff they passed.
  4. I literally laughed out loud at the assertion they were “self-funded”.

    In 1935 the life expectancy was 61....4 years BEFORE the retirement age.

    Regardless, making this announcement two weeks before the election was a dumb move.

  8. Borrowed, stole, wherever. It’s a Ponzi scheme BUT you are dead right, stupid timing.

    ^^^^ This right here!!^^^^^

    Regardless of what their plans or intentions are, dumping that information on the msm with just a couple of weeks to go was an irresponsible thing to do. I don't see anyway that this helps them in November. While I agree something needs to be done with the SS system, there is no way it should have been discussed until after the mid-terms. Why give the democRATS any ammo in the elections?

    That money has funded stuff, but it ain't Social Security.

    The Republicans have a long history of self inflicted wounds....sort of a circular firing squad......They should have learned by now from the Democrats that timing is everything before an election.

    Yeah, and that sick puke John Yarmuth, DemonRat from KY, voted for this. And imagine my laughing (maniacal outrage laughing) when I saw his re-election commercial last night when he was bragging how he was going to 'fight to save Medicare'.

    Sick of these lying cucks.
