Can someone explain to me why when there is talk about the death of social security, it is never mentioned that our Congress and Presidents have misused the taxes collected for paying social security? Even now the big surplus that is being fought over by the Congress and the President is 2/3 social security funds. People who have never contributed a penny to the fund is drawing money from the fund. With accounting practices like this, it is not hard to see that social security will run out of money in 2014. I know that we will not be able to stop the government's misuse of the social security funds, I would just like for them to admit they are the problem.
