    Cool The GOP GOD, Ronald Reagan said it himself in 1984

    REAGAN: Social Security, let’s lay it to rest once in for all…Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit. Social Security is totally funded by the payroll tax levied on employer and employee. If you reduce the outgo of Social Security, that money would not go into the general fund to reduce the deficit. It would go into the Social Security trust fund. So Social Security has nothing to do with balancing the budget or erasing or lowering the deficit.



    A number of right-wing politicians and corporate CEOs are demanding that Congress and the President agree to cuts to Social Security along with reductions in the corporate tax rate as part of a “Grand Bargain.”

    These conservatives who are making this demand should heed the words of their icon, former President Ronald Reagan. In the 1984 presidential debate, Reagan — the most right-wing president in his generation — debunked the lie that Social Security adds to the debt:
    Benghazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Tuesday, January 20, 2009; The Republican Leadership Pledge a campaign of obstruction against everything President Obama wants or does, even before the President had one night in The Oval Office. Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives

    It’s not a real Tea Party without some Fruitcakes and Nuts.

    Social Security is not included in the official US debt that is over $16T. If you look at the unofficial debt, that includes SS and the other separately funded entitlement programs they amount to over $200T over the next 75 years.
