  •  Thank you for this fantastic, comprehensive (11+ / 0-)

    and timely diary.  I have been making deposits into my SS account since I was 18 years old.  I'm 62 now and they better be prepared to take my SS payments from my cold, dead hands and not before!  I EARNED those payments when I start collecting them.  I'm only entitled to them because they're already mine.  I am sick and tired of Republicans trying to STEAL this "surplus" to gamble with it on the stock market and pocket it when that market crashes again and with no money from Congress to fund oversight of Wall Street, that shit is guaranteed.

    Fuck off, Republicans, and keep your filthy, lying hands off MY HARD EARNED SOCIAL SECURITY!

    Best. President. Ever.

      We haven't paid those lifetime of FICA and Medicare paycheck deductions for nothing.

      We earned those benefits.

      We kept up our end of the Social Contract.

      It's time for the Govt to honor its IOU's.

      That is the honorable and fair and humane thing to do.
