6. A discussion of SS 'reform' has to include the trillions that were borrowed
from the SS fund to finance the U.S. deficit over the past couple of decades. I see the Post slides right past this part of the story. Showing that any 'discussion' as envisioned by them is not going to be conducted honestly. Hopefully somewhere in the media coverage of this 'discussion' the fact will be confronted, that the U.S. owes the money to the fund, that it borrowed so that it could continue spending more than it was taking in, so that adminstrations could look like good guys for not raising taxes to raise revenue. Pay it back and there is no crisis in Social Security.
