    You do realize the Feds spent that "surplus" years ago, right?

    For years now it has been an accepted fact that SS and Medicare is heading
    for disaster....

    Now when Republicans want to address this issue which has been a third rail in politics for years.
    SS is fine....

    what a bunch of Bullshit.

    What surplus?

    Why did Obama threaten our Seniors with poverty and destitution by not being able to send out those checks?

    Well, he has shown his disdain for the truth, so what's the big deal. Do whatever it takes to get the black guy out of the WH.

    SS and Medicare are just fine, dupes. Obamacare saves Medicare- how do you think they save that 700 billion over 10 years, DUPES? Romney/Teddycare proves it, just 2% rises now... Ryan also cuts the 700 billion, but for a tax cut for the rich and a screw the nonrich, his theme.

    You are an Idiot, there is no surplus, Ryan was accurate, they Drained the Trust fund long ago.

    I mean how fucking stupid can 1 person be? Everyone agrees SS is Going to Fail if left unchanged, and you find some Complete BS on the Internet that says otherwise and think, oh wow man wait till they all hear this, I discovered it's not really going to fail.

    lol
