Social Security is not a complicated issue. It is not an entitlement program or a big government give-away. It is not a socialist program. Social Security is a contract between the government and the citizens. The citizens pay money out of every paycheck for the entirety of their working lives. When the citizen reaches 65 and retires the government pays the citizen back.
The problem is very simple. Congress has stolen the money from Social Security. In other words, our elected officials in both houses in Washington led by the elite of both parties have stolen all of the money that was collected from the people and used it for pet projects, expanding Medicaid, welfare as well as many other programs for illegal aliens, Obamacare and etc. Social Security was stolen from we the people to fund programs and deals that would help those congressmen and congresswomen amass and retain power and insure re-election.
The media have grouped Social Security under entitlements hoping to protect these government programs and the liberals who support them. Congress claims that Social Security needs to be reformed before it “goes broke”. However, not one of them has gone against the crowd to speak the truth and point out that there would be no threat of “going broke” if congress had not taken the money that they did not have the right to take. I wonder what would happen to one of us if we decided to take someone else’s money and use it. Could we then patiently explain to the police that the victim must learn to budget better and simply put back more money? Would we be able to successfully redefine the problem so that the court would not blame us? Of course not! So why are we letting the crooks in Washington off the hook?
Why should we the people have to pay for what they the congress have stolen?
