    However, it now contains billions in IOUs thanks to Johnson's War on Poverty that saw this huge pool of investment money they gave away to enslave the poor into voting Democrat. Money used to build the "Projects," now mostly abandoned and demolished. Money to pay teen girls to become brood mares. Money to promote generation after generation of non productive people that sit on their ever spreading bottoms all day, abuse drugs, drive around in their Cadillac, poison their minds with mindless crap on the big screen TVs, and producing litters of kids that raise themselves in the streets.

    The welfare money will vanish before SS goes bankrupt. When that happens, one had better be prepared for the zombie like riots that will soon explode nationwide in all the big cities ghettos.
    Did you understand my post #17 above?

    Funds paid into Social Security (basically another tax) don't get stuffed under the mattress or buried in a can in the back yard. Unless the "conflict of interests" issue can be resolved, they can't be invested in private sector such as stocks and bonds, so only option is to place it into the general fund and us it now, issue those "IOUs", and pay out from future general fund as needed (and if available). Accounts are kept, but it's not realistic to set "piles of cash" aside and expect such to "grow".

    A combination of general ignorance on economics, mis-perceptions on Guv'mint fiscal methods, and some of the dis-information to peddle the programs, like S.S., too many think these programs work like a commercial bank account would; which they can't.
