    You are not complete in as you left out that the Government has been issuing IOUs to the SS fund for many years....Or are you like me and losing information as we get older.

    You need to read the actual actions not the synopsis of your links They don't exactly match the narrative by some archive employee. Just like a lot of the bills brought from the Thomas Library have a new narrative to twist the readers view to a liberal view like the second amendment narrative.

    So typical of everything from the Right, ALL LIES!

    For example:
    Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

    A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.

    Truth: There has never been any change in the way the Social Security program is financed or the way that Social Security payroll taxes are used by the federal government. The Social Security Trust Fund was created in 1939 as part of the Amendments enacted in that year. From its inception, the Trust Fund has always worked the same way. The Social Security Trust Fund has never been "put into the general fund of the government."

    Example # 2:
    Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

    A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US

    Truth: The taxation of Social Security began in 1984 following passage of a set of Amendments in 1983, which were signed into law by President Reagan in April 1983. These amendments passed the Congress in 1983 on an overwhelmingly bi-partisan vote.

    You just proved once again how uninformed you are. When will you learn?

    Linked it months ago when it happened. Even linked the thread I generated.

    So, you are trying to pass off the removal of a loophole that was abused by WEALTHY COUPLES who try to game the SS system as a cut in benefits to ALL collecting SS. A typical CON$ervoFascist half-truth/whole-lie.

    Beware of the half-truth. You may have gotten hold of the wrong half.

    Can't you be honest about this?

    I can see cutting this benefit but the fact remains, Obama CUT SOCIAL SECURITY!!!

    You didn't even know about this as most Americans don't, thanks to a dishonest media.

    Trick Question: If W or Trump did this, would the DNC media still have kept you in the dark?

    Creative accounting is the same as theft.
