Response to Swede Atlanta (Reply #1)

3. Social Security

I applaud your response to this news item. Social Security is not the problem in this country. It is the greed of those in Congress and the fact that they borrowed from the Social Security Trust Fund and have to pay it back. Paying it back is stuck in their craw and creates a distaste for the fund. Threats to change the program are simply that - - threats. It is political suicide to touch the fund since it does not add one dime to our debt. Congress simply does not want to pay it back. Social Security it not a problem, Congress is.
