The assets of the larger trust fund (OASI), from which retirement benefits are paid, were nearly depleted in 1982. No beneficiary was shortchanged because the Congress enacted temporary emergency legislation that permitted borrowing from other Federal trust funds and then later enacted legislation to strengthen OASI Trust Fund financing.So, the people who were due benefits still got them, but they were paid with borrowed money. I'm sorry, but you lost me. You lamented that SS should invest their surplus and I showed that they are investing their surplus.Jim
