3rd post- I am aware Pres Johnson took our SS money to fund HIS war. That led to everyone else in Congress sticking their hand in the pot as well. IOU's have never been paid. What if I pay taxes and the Pres decides that he could use that money to fund somehing else. So with the stroke of the pen he says he is taking that money out of IRS and putting it into another fune. Would that be okay too. Same thing. NO difference. We are talking of trillions of $$ from SS taken. And they want to tell us this was an entitlement that came out of our pay checks?? Baloney!!
