    I have no idea what your talking about so no and for the record I could find so many better things to mock Gore over.

    What difference does it make? Either way someone has to raise taxes and hope it raises revenues, cut spending or borrow more money.

    You can't put SS in a lockbox. How would that even work?

    The SNL Debate, one word to sum up your campaign
    Bush-Strategery
    Gore-Lockbox

    Again a Bush win. The real question to the OP is why wasnt it in a lockbox to begin with, FDR, what a dumbass

    The federal govt steals out of SS anyway to pay for general expenditures. This was just another assorted gimmick on top of the ponzi scheme.
