    This is hilarious from the person that spent most of this thread insulting those he doesn't agree with.

    Wonderful. So we can now consider Factcheck a "right-wing blog". People like this on both sides make me laugh my ass off.

Toss in Obamacare and well...
    SS has been so successful, it has a surplus of 2.6 trillion dollars, enough for full payments through 2036. The general fund used this surplus to reduce the debt caused by a needless war in Iraq and tax cuts for the wealthy. Now its time to pay back the money borrowed from SS by cutting our excessive military spending and eliminating the tax cuts for the rich.

    I guess you are another one that only believes FactCheck when it supports you.

    No, read the CBO report though.

    Did you?



    Since the robbery of Social Security was renewed, I'm sure the CBO numbers are even worse now.
