Here is the problem, both dims and repubs are the same. They both take money from the same lobbyists. They don't care about spending as long as they have the money to get reelected. They wallow in the same pen, eat at the same trough. Green (money) Acres and all the Arnold's are stopping this country from being great once more. Of course the head hog (Oscuma) gets more. Animal Farm?

Let's expose presidential prevarication. Earlier this year, President Barack Obama warned that Social Security checks will be delayed if Congress fails to increase the government's borrowing authority by raising the debt ceiling. However, there's an issue with this warning. According to the 2012 Social Security trustees report, assets in Social Security's trust funds totaled $2.7 trillion, and Social Security expenditures totaled $773 billion. Therefore, regardless of what Congress does about the debt limit, Social Security recipients are guaranteed their checks. Just take the money from the $2.7 trillion assets held in trust.

Which is the lie, Social Security checks must be...
