    That was the WHOLE POINT AND PURPOSE of raising the FICA tax and establishing the "trust fund". It was SUPPOSED to be there when the payouts "went negative", and it was SUPPOSED to last through the "demographic bulge" of the Boomer generation.

    In practice the money was STOLEN and WASTED on stupid, STUPID wars, as well as payouts to the ultra-rich and ultra-greedy. Now that the bills are coming due, the thieves in Congress (which is practically all of them DON'T WANT TO PAY UP.

    If it's
    Not your body,
    Then it's
    Not your choice

    None of your damn business!
