You sir need to take a step back and calm down. I don't need to tell you what you are, you already know it. Since you are doing so great in life paying for the rest of the bums on ATS why not buy yourself a new country where you can screen who gets to live in it and who doesn't. The gubbernmint lied and deceived the American people as usual, and you just follow the ridiculous notion that the US is going bankrupt because of the poor people. I hope someday you get to walk in a SS recipients shoes, but not likely, seeing as how life is just peachy and you don't need to whine, except whining about whiners. Whiner.

I would like everyone to know the truth!

With Obama quoting: "I can not guarantee those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it." It got me thinking, Mr. Obama. I thought Social Security was in a lock box in its own fund? Why would Social Security be in the General "coffers" of the Federal Government and be threatened to not be handed out if we hit our debt limit? If it was in its own fund there would not be a problem right?

So i started to do some digging and found out that we, United States Citizens, have been lied to. There is no Social Security "Lock Box" there is no separate account. Social Security is lumped into the whole US Treasury General Fund! Shocking! We been lied to by our Government! who would have thought!

Under the Supreme Court Case Helvering v. Davis case. On November 12, 1936, "(Social Security payments) are not earmarked for any special purpose." They are (Social Security payments) "true taxes, their purpose being simply to raise revenue . . . available for the general support of Government." This was a Supreme Court decision questioning the constituionality of Social Security

www.lewrockwell.com...

So for all of us paying our Social Security tax, Its just that, a tax that goes into the general fund. NO LOCK BOX! If Social Security does not get paid when we hit the debt limit, you will know why. Obama sliped as was cought telling the truth to the american people that Social Security is part of the General fund. We get 200 billion a month from taxes. Social Security cost 50 billion. If Social Security is not paid out it's because its prioritized that way. plan and simple

Can you believe they teach you in school that Social Security is in its own "Lock Box." What a Joke.

Nice to know huh.

Have a Great Day ALL!

I went to school in the 80s. At no point was it ever taught that Social Security was separate from anything else. In fact, it was taught, and known by even the most seemingly ignorant of folks, that Social Security would run out within our lifetimes.

In short: my generation, and all those since, have been taught that what we pay in social security we shall never see returned to us. We accept this as fact, even if we do not really accept the reality of it.

I'm sorry this was a rude awakening for you.

Your apology doesn't seem too genuine. Why not just call him ignorant? The guy is posting news that is news to some, not all. If a 2 year old posts that he just figured out why the night is dark are you going to belittle him and apologize to him too?

I guess Obama slipped up not realizing some Americans did not know they were spending all the money our government gets plus a whole lot more. Social Security is the biggest ponzi scheme around. The American public needs to know more about economics and how our government operates in order to vote for more intelligent and wise politicians.

Its the little lies that hurt the most. yeah look up the case. it will shock you. Best part is Obama gave it away. I would not have looked it up if he did not say it


Irwin Schiff talks about that in his book, "The Federal Mafia". He says SS is a ponzi scheme.

And that's how long they've been talkin about fixin it! You'd think with all that focus on it being defunct, more people would say no to letting the gov do the same thing with healthcare. But, oh wait, the T Parties did that! And Janet responded saying T Partiers were domestic terrorists to b e feared, and oh Nancy Pelosi was sooooo scared, her voice all shaky and everything (lol one of the funniest acting moments in history).

Another ruling by the Supreme Court that impacts Social Security is Flemming v. Nestor


The Court ruled that no such contract exists, and that there is no contractual right to receive Social Security payments. Payments due under Social Security are not “property” rights and are not protected by the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment. The interest of a beneficiary of Social Security is protected only by the Due Process Clause

Flemming v Nestor


He appealed the termination arguing, among other claims, that promised Social Security benefits were a contract and that Congress could not renege on that contract. In its ruling, the Court rejected this argument and established the principle that entitlement to Social Security benefits is not contractual right.

ssa.gov

This case basically ruled that SS benefits are not property protected by the Fifth Amendment. Therefore the money you paid into SS is just another tax attached to a political promise that can be reduced, denied, or changed in any way at a political whim.

Obama did a good thing by attempting to scare the masses dependent on SS and other entitlements. He proved once and for all that there is no segregated "trust fund" that these payments come from. So where did it go?

Also as far as what is considered the "trust funds", it's actually a component of the "debt subject to the debt limit" the two components of this are "publicly held debt" (mostly T-Bills, Notes, and Bonds) and intra-government debt ( these are the IOUs given by Treasury to the SS and Medicare administrators). There's also another funny thing about those IOUs they aren't normal marketable Bonds, Notes, and Bills that can be sold on the open market for the going rate and they don't pay coupons in cash. The IOUs held by the SS and Medicare administrators can only be redeemed by Treasury. If they were to be redeemed SS or Medicare would have to go to Treasury, and then Treasury would either give them the cash from current accounts or more likely issue debt to get the cash to give to SS. Since the intra-government debt would go down and the debt held by public would go up by equal amounts the effect on debt subject to debt limit is a net zero. So why is it possible that SS may not pay out next month unless the President doesn't want it to or those funds have been looted?

SS is a pyramid scheme but the worst part of the lie is when they talk about the tax rate that Americans are burdened with but they do it by (a) dividing out tax burden in to small bits and pieces and labeling only one of them which accounts for about half of the total tax as Federal Tax and (b) devaluing the currency so that each year we actually lose money on our "investment" in to social security. $100 stolen in 1950 would be returned as about $8 in 2011 and so on and on it will go. The usual response [to any criticism of SS] is that it is cold hearted [to criticize] because at least granny is getting $8 now.

Cut SOCIAL SECURITY.

Obama and the democrats will find out the power of AARP the next election.

Cut money to the disabled and he can add them to his foes. plus from what i have found is large numbers of the disabled in the US are from government not doing there job of protecting workers in the workplace or from the effects of pollution that was allowed to happen by the government.

What next cut money to disabled veterans???
That might get the military mad at him. it sure would get veteran mad at him.

I already see the writing on the wall that Obama will be a one term president because of all his grand ideas.
