The speaker of the house, Paul Ryan, and his cohorts keep trying to sell the story that the reason Social Security may run out of money is because too many people are drawing it down. That is a complete and absolute LIE. If Congress (that’s both the house and senate) would STOP dipping into it and leaving their stinking I.O.U.s there, the program would be flush with cash. It was never intended to be the congressional slush fund it has become.
Ironically Congress exempted itself from the program and established its own “retirement” system that the American public cannot participate in. They (the congress) contribute nothing, nada, zilch to their own retirement. We, the American public, pay every penny that goes into it. What a really sweet deal they have given themselves!
