Agreed, Corbett, SS is already broke - due to monumental fraud that dwarfs anything that Bernie Madoff ever thought of. Most people have been lead to believe that their FICA money is sitting in trust for them. In reality, all the extra money has been spent on other programs, and the SS vault is full of T-Bill IOU's that are totally dependent on future generations agreeing to honor them. That said, I consider myself a conservative who wants to prevent intergeneralizational warfare. By reducing the FICA tax, it makes this war more probable. Obama was the biggest cheerleader on this, and I condemn him for it.
