Social Security people do pay taxes I know I will pay this year because I was unemployed and received that money then I got a small part time job and received that money I cashed in some IRA funds and that counted and I received a retirement check from a former company. In fact if I get money I am taxed yet those who get EBT cards, AIDC, cell phones, housing, medicaid and etc. none is taxed that is where we need to start. If the unemployed's checks are taxed, if Social Security receipts are taxed all income it does not matter where from should be taxed!

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...
