The federal government has raided and pillaged our Social
Security Trust fund — bilking more than $2.8 trillion
in an effort to hide the true size of the federal deficit!
For years Social Security ran at a surplus — but no more!
Every penny has been siphoned off, leaving Social Security
teetering on the very brink of insolvency. And unless
dramatic, financial measures are taken, Social Security
will collapse under the weight of the retiring baby-boom
$2.8 trillion in Social Security surplus that has been
brazenly “stolen” by politicians from both sides
of the political aisle for decades!
Even worse than the corruption is the fact that politicians
are expecting senior citizens to sacrifice while their
bloated budgets continue to swell!
That kind of dishonesty may have worked once-upon-a-time, but
today’s grassroots citizens are engaged, informed and we know
the depth of mismanagement, corruption and waste that has
put our nation in such dire straits and we simply aren’t
going to stand for it anymore!
There is no doubt that unless citizens speak up, this kind of
financial debauchery will continue!
