Ok. I think I've got it now.<quoted text>
That is not what I said. Let me go through it real slowly so a GD idiot like you might understand.
In order to give a tax break to working Americans, the payroll tax was utilized as a mechanism.
By reducing this rate, the benefit only went to those who worked & were on a payroll.
The monies lost to SS were then replaced by monies from the general fund.
So lets review.
The government did not take this money from the payroll tax cut, it was never collected.
We are taking about a portion of the payroll tax revenue, not all of it.
The government borrows the SS surplus by law. A law signed by Ronald Reagan.
Evidently, you were too stupid to read about the law passed by Congress that did this. I did not make it up. You were too just stupid to know it.
You & Galt are two of the most uninformed people posting here.
Money is taken from Social Security and put into the general fund, then Social Security is paid back from the general fund.
I think you should begin with something a lot simpler, like where money comes from. How money is manipulated in government obviously confuses you. So, let's begin with a very simple question:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
To answer this question, you actually have to identify a source of money.
If you can't answer this simple question, any other discussion about government expenditures will be beyond your ability to understand.
