25. No YOU don't get it
If you take this deal as it is, then Social Security becomes funded partially by the Federal Government.
It would be the first time in history that that happens and sets the stage for that to be the norm, which
would allow the perception to be created that it is a welfare program rather then an earned benefit
program. This plan sets the potential demise for social security by under funding it and having the
difference made up by the Government.
Additionally this plan increases the National debt by borrowing from China and putting it on a credit
card for your kids to pay off. It's a bad deal. It's not about winning a political fight, it's about keeping
a middle class and keeping social security intact
