    I never said anything about intent.

    Further, don't start going off on SS funds used in the budget, or I will have to remind you AGAIN about Greenspan and Ronnie pushing the big increase in FICA to make the budget look better to cover for Ronnies massive defense spending increases.

There was no Clinton surplus due to intergovt. holding obligations in the future

    Simple question, in 2000, 480.6 million dollars went into SS and only 330.8 million came out. Isn't that 480.6 a future obligation? How can a liberal claim there was a surplus when the receipts are owed in the future?
    The angry republican rhetoric. When the data doesn't support u your POV, we must redefine terminology as a means of rationalization.

    Typical nonsense spewed by the financially illiterate.
    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.

    Tell us again about your vast business experience.....
    Where do the insurance funds come from that you put into SS. I am convinced you have no idea how foolish you sound. You really have no concept of where the money comes from that you will get from SS. The Federal Govt. doesn't buy premiums with your SS contribution, the Federal Govt. is self funded. It will borrow, print, or take the money from future contributors to SS to pay you your SS supplemental income. I would have thought someone of your superior intelligence would understand that. Liberals continue to disappoint me.

    I asked you a pretty simple question that you ran from, is the over 400,000 taken into SS/Medicare and other Intergovernment holdings in 2000 a future obligation? If not then it can be used with no consequences. I am sure that someone of your superior intelligence and book smarts understand the answer to that. Now the question is will you run from the truth?

    Greenspan and "Ronnie" increased FICA taxes to make the SSTF look better as it was almost broke. When are you going to realize how foolish you sound?

    The biggest part of a Ponzi scheme is using someone else's money to fund an obligation to you and so on and so on. Light bulb go off yet?

Simple question, is your contribution being returned to you when you retire or is it going to come from someone else?
    It's not a Ponzi scheme because it has a constant supply of investors, a Ponzi scheme depends upon deceit to get new investors and eventually goes broke when people no longer invest in the scheme. What is it about conservatism that makes people so ignorant?
