skye:"It is almost like...the government pays its bills out of current revenues plus borrowing. Who knew? "

Surely not Jimmy Carter who told us about the SS lockbox.

Surely not Reagan who did the same

Even more so Billy Clinton who kept telling us along with all his dem friends about the SS lockbox.

Same for Bwarney Franks...and all the other Congressional dems.

Our money is safely locked away in the SS lockbox.

Even more telling is a lockbox full of IOUs the government spent.

You guys and gals are jokes.

You dems have blabbed 'social security lockbox' for so long you don't realize it.

Now, you tell us the gov't pays SS out of 'current revenue'.

What a joke. You can't have it both ways.

And 2 workers can't afford to pay for $25K per retiree in SS benefits, either.

That's where we are at and it might even get worse.

It's a shame libs can't do math.
