If Social Security had not been REMOVED from a TRUST FUND to the GENERAL FUND. We would not be seeing the problems that we have today. If that were to happen with TRUST FUNDS in the private sector, we would be in Jail. The Government forgets that it works for WE THE PEOPLE. Every thing the Feds touches FAILS big time and WE THE PEOPLE pay with our very existance. Get rid of the EPA (over Regulation), Board of Education (dumbing down, Homeland Security(TSA gropers) and many more that makes for a BLOATED government.
