Corrupt is too kind a word. Over the years we kept hearing that our monies that we paid into SS was being used by Congress to fund other activities. For a long time they said we must put a lock on the SS lock box and not use it for anything other than paying ss recipients. That never happened. Yesterday I e-mailed Romney to ask him if he plans to do anything about it and to STOP calling it an enttlement program. The only ones entitled to that money are SS recipients. We paid into it (involuntarily, I might add) every pay check for over 30 or 40 years. If I had the option of not paying into it but instead putting that amount into the bank I would be well off today.
