The misconception that all the social security funds are piled up in a room somewhere or in Algore's mysterious lockbox has been purposfully promoted by those who don't want the masses to know just how unsafe their old age retirement is. Social security funds are far from safe in DC and aren't separate at all from the general fund. In fact, the balance of social security is readily dipped into by government officials who refuse to cut their expenses regardless of attempts to cut expenditures at the federal level.
