16. Sadly, It was Lyndon Johnson
His admin moved SS into the "general fund", and made it fair game to be looted..which happened ever since.

Once congress had all the "boomer excess money", they could NOT resist, and used it like a big ole credit card with an unlimited credit line.

We have been scammed out of our retirement money which we PREPAID ( and shored up the retirements of our grandparents/parents.. They GOT theirs, but now we are considered "greedy" because congress "forgot" that someday we would expect to retire too?
