66. SS does not add 1 penny to the debt
If THE EMERGENCY IS THE NATIONAL DEBT - then why are we talking about SS ??

Anytime someone puts up a pie chart that shows our budget and it includes SS, medicare, defense & other programs -IT IS A LIE !!!

SS is self funded and runs a surplus, it is not part of the deficit and I am tired of the talking heads lumping it in one big pie and acting like it is part of the budget problem.

And why is it the repugs have the house, so they push an extreme right wing agenda but the dems have the senate and put together a bipartisan commission and are headed towards a CONservative position. Seems to me, with the congressmen we have it's HEADS THEY WIN - TAILS WE LOSE
