    Re: Next in Line for a Bailout: Social Security

    I heard the GOP guys on TV the other day talking about people under the age of 55 might have to accept a restructuring of SS. (read: cuts.)

    The TV pundit TRIED to get him to say "cuts" but the politician wouldn't go there. He skated around it.

    I don't trust the democrats with much. But I trust them a helluva lot more than I do the republicans when it comes to entitlements like SS. The DNC claim to fame is government cheese. The GOP's claim to fame is "**** you. I got mine!"

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"

    So I asked you to quote Obama making those lies. You failed to find that supposed quote and instead listed an article about on the subject which provides no quote from The President that matches the ""Obama is trying to save it through the lies that there is no inflation so no one on SS gets a cost of living raise" quote that you made.
    I showed there will be no raise as I said. So you are paying less for things as the Obama administration claims is the reason for no raise.

    Read what i posted.

    Yours included.


    Since 1984, Social Security has raked in more in payroll taxes than it has paid in benefits, accumulating a $2.5 trillion trust fund. But because the government uses the trust fund to pay for other programs, tax increases, spending cuts or new borrowing will be required to make up the difference between taxes collected and benefits owed.
    There is no fund just IOU's from congress because they spent it all.

    I know. It's a shame. The deficit spending of the last 10 years has burned it all up.
