mulinroe, the SS Trust Fund is indeed made up of IOU's from the Treasury. Current outlays are made from current inflows from the payroll tax. The question is "Can Treasury pay up when due," and, with the federal government an acknowledged $16T in debt, I think the answer is obvious--Treasury can not pay up. But, if you are so naive as to believe that the debt of the US government shall not be questioned, then you can trust me when I tell you that I will marry you if I impregnate you (I assume you are female).
