Social Security "Never Added a Dime to the Deficit" Really?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said, "Social Security has contributed not a single penny to the deficit. So we can talk about entitlements as long as you eliminate Social Security."

I wonder what is behind the Democratic commitment to avoiding reality at all costs. Is it raw stupidity or is it something more sinister? In Reid's case, it comes across as raw stupidity.
