    I do. I'm being asked to pay twice. I pay in, the government spends it for all sorts of things that have nothing to do with what it was paid in for and then I have to pay more taxes to repay what they stole out of S.S.

    I will say it to you and your lot put your greedy fingers into the SS pot and see how many of your conservative buddies get re-elected, and by the way my anticipating a return on my monies and the millions of other working americans who have contributed through their working years to SS are NOT embarrased by cashing our SS checks, we paid for our SS and intend to collect it

    Hmm Was LBJ before or after your hero, President Reagan?

    Earlz, you just show how brainwashed you are. Your money is gone, that doesn't mean you will not get someone else's but the fact is you don't have a clue. Too bad you aren't as concerned as to where your contribution went in the first place.

    And lose a huge chunk of it like many I know did the next time an artificial bubble or enron-style fraud happens. I don't gamble recreationally, I'm highly unlikely.to do so with retirement funds, especially knowing the extent to which the game on Wall St is and has always been, rigged.

    Ronald Reagan took over a SS system that was going broke, he raised FICA taxes to cover the shortfall and expected future Presidents to not use the surplus like Previous Presidents did. He was wrong just like you are wrong now

    He didn't win Texas in '08 either, so I doubt he's really worried about that.

    Whoa. A Republican just said Reagan was less than god-like. In fact, you said "He was wrong."

    Did Hell freeze over?

    Obama's results will be on the ballot, not your perception of what a nice person he is. Results matter, not rhetoric

    Reagan had no way of knowing that future Presidents would use the SS surplus if any to fund other programs. When are you going to understand that your SS money is gone, being used to pay my SS? Thank you. Tell that to your kids or maybe even you when you are old enough to collect SS and after taking advantage of that Payroll Tax cut Obama announced tonight. Interesting how liberals are the ones cutting SS with that tax cut.
