    Reagan raised FICA taxes to put money back into the count, money that had been stolen due to the actions of LBJ in the 60's. Ever wonder why politicians are fighting so hard to keep SS the way it is? Research LBJ and his actions will explain it to you.

    No, you've just attached your defintion, your incorrect definition to SS. Seriously, this response by you lacks a lot.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    My response stands, you don't like it, tough. Anytime you put your money into SS and have it spent on something other than the original intent and then rely on someone else to fund your retirement in the future, that is a ponzi scheme. To continue to argue it isn't serving any purpose so in this case we can only agree to disagree. My money was long gone before I started collecting SS just like yours will be long gone as well. That wasn't the intent.

    Don't blame you from wanting to divert from the Job's speech and the very poor employment performance of your choice for the WH. Don't blame you from diverting from that record.

    As that what you think I am doing? No complaints here at all, just logic and common sense. Obviously the job market is great for you since you have one. Much easier to bury your head in the sand and not worry about those that don't. Your liberal compassion says it all.

    I responded to someone's post about about GDP following the Great Depression when you complained I was off-topic to divert from Obama's record.

    Don't run away from your convictions just because you are ashamed of them.

    No it's not. You're making up your own definition of what a ponzi scheme is and then saying that matches SS. It may match SS but it doesn't match a ponzi scheme.

    A ponzi scheme doesn't take in money to invest in something other than paying off investors. SS does that ... a ponzi scheme does not. They are not the same.

    You seem to be the one ashamed of "your" President because you keep running from his record. I love being a conservative and have no problem with you making as much money as you possible can. That is the difference between me and you. I don't blame you from dodging the Obama record or distorting it by posting percentage change because then that prevents you from actually having to look at individuals. You see a 40% increase in the debt going from 10 trillion to 14 trillion or 4 trillion increase always looks better than the percentage change of taking the debt from 900 billion to 2.6 trillion or a 1.7 trillion increase. 4 trillion is a lot less than 1.7 trillion right?

    Then of course taking the unemployment up to 25 million unemployed and under employed is a lot better than taking the unemployment and under employed to 22 million because the percentage change is better. That is why you have no credibility, the 3 million more unemployed and under employed aren't excited about Obama's record of lower percentage change.

    You seem hung up on the legal definition of ponzi scheme. Guess it isn't only me that believes it is a ponzi scheme since it is an obligation that our kids and grandkids cannot sustain. So You really don't understand a ponzi scheme, pyramid scheme, chain letter, do you? Keep buying what the liberal elites tell you

    Since he gets it wrong, he must be brainwashed by those Texan conservatives who want their governor to be President.
