    I wonder if anyone in this discussion can illustrate why this is not a ponzi scheme.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Well now, isn't that special, nothing refutes anything I have posted. Your money is gone, spent by those compassionate liberals that you support and what do we have to show for it, trillions in IOU's that have to be funded. You are one brainwashed human being who is out of touch with reality. Facts simply confuse you

    No, my argument is that social security is not illegal.

    It's illegal for me to kill someone that is no threat to me. The government may do so. Unfortunately the government allows themselves to legally do things what would be illegal for others.

    Hey! Didn't we just establish that ALL the admins since LBJ tapped the trust funds? There were some republicans in there too. So conservatives spent some of that money too.

    In fact I bet you a twenty dollar donation that Republicans spent MORE than Dems (starve the beast and all). Now who do you hold responsible for this kind of stuff again? The congress or the president? I seem to remember some confusion on this point in the past. But if we can parse WHO spent what when then my wager stands.

    In what way does the government legally kill someone who is not a threat?

    Ford
    Reagan
    GWH Bush
    Clinton
    GW Bush
    Obama

    You win on the Republican Presidents but it is Congress that borrows and appropriates the money, not the President so I will take that bet

    I have provided links that show SS is not a ponzi scheme you choose to ignore any thing that disproves your BS, You think that you are so intelligent that nobody can see what your real agenda is, as I have told you before you are not that slick, enjoy the money you have already made from the backs of Wall Street investors, keep pushing to end SS I want to see an end to the republican party. Your brain washing techniques are not that good
