The politicians have raided the social security trust fund over the years and have absconded with approximately 3 trillion dollars. They have used these funds to pay for the Iraq War, and who knows what else. At the very time Bush was using these funds to pay for the war, he and the politicians gave billions in tax breaks to the very rich while the middle class got a few insignificant tax breaks.
McConnell and Boehner want to cut entitlements (ie: Social Security and Medicare). Let me point out, Social Security is an earned entitlement. Ronald Reagan dropped the word earned entitlement and the GOP has followed his deception ever since.
From all the research I have done on the matter, I believe Social Security has not in any way contributed to our deficit problem and will not in the future if the politicians replace the 3 trillion they have misappropriated.
The politicians must replace the Social Security money before we allow any talk of tampering with our Social Security benefits.
