It may be interesting to note that your congressperson, and mine, do not belong to SS. They have their own sweet program that is not in any way connected to that messy old SS...and it is fully funded by you and I by our tax dollars.

It's amazing how many otherwise astute people fall for this crap.

While I think my congressman (House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R. Tx)) is a raving lunatic, I take comfort in the fact that he pays FICA and I don't. See link:
