Proposal to steal social security surplus is defeated
The House voted on a Constitutional amendment for a balanced budget. According to Nancy Altman, President of Social Security Works: "That means that Social Security would not be allowed to use its own $2.9 trillion surplus to pay out benefits." Fortunately it did not receive the required two-thirds vote for such an amendment. The intent though it clear: Stealing our own social security contributions for their own purposes and thus leaving future generations high and dry when it comes their turn to collect their own invested money. And they wonder why we the people hate them? The list of those who voted for it is below. Give them a piece of you mind and vote the bastards out. Also see this prior post.
