The problem with our country is the fact that no one wants to pay extra taxes, but yet want all the entitlements which are funded solely through taxes.

Hear hear! Now, about this so-called "trust fund" (admission: perhaps I should have put "so-called" in quotes also. My understanding of the trust-fund is that it is already spent debt, please correct me if I am wrong). How is it funded?

Note: I am not a right-wing nut, many of whose opinions I used to read here. I am, however, a realist.
