4. And some of the commenters just got things wrong
Like this comment about Social Security:
Question: When the payroll tax was lowered by 2% did it impact the Trust Fund? Answer: No...it's only make believe money in the trust fund and they can make believe they have anything they want. Obama sent a directive that they do this...
As tclambert notes, it's not make-believe money. Obama sent no directive -- the legislation establishing the payroll tax holiday also provided for a transfer from the general fund to the Social Security Trust Fund to make up the difference. The right wing is hung up on this idea that Obama is governing as a dictator.
