Because that system is supposed to be a safety net!
Politicians have robbed from it and misappropriated those funds for stupid $#IT. If it isn't locked so they cannot continue to robbed from it old folks and handicapped Americans will have to eat cat food! Ignoring the truth has not worked yet, we are now within 10 or 20 years of bankrupting that system!

From what has been told, Obama`s new Budget will cut back on SS# payments as they will figure the method differently ,as to the cost of living , or, COLA. Another way to save money for the gov`t to spend, at the seniors expense. None will likely lose enough to make a difference, but when millions of one dollar at a time are counted all together, you have millions of dollars. Just another way to screw the people.

As long as we have this type of POTUS, and these types of people(and we always do) the only things we, the People can do, is try to keep them out of the people`s gov`t.

Social Security is not the huge contributor to the deficit that the Republicans (so desperately) would have you believe, unless you believe that the United States is literally going to collapse in the near future - Social Security is not -! Besides, Social Security isn't even hard to understand, FICA taxes go in, benefits go out. Unlike healthcare, which involves extremely difficult questions of technological advancement and the specter of rationing, Social Security is just arithmetic. Right now, Social Security costs about 4.5% of GDP. That's going to increase as the baby boomer generation retires, and then in 2030 it steadies out at around 6% of GDP. We have been running surpluses for quite some time adding to the Trust Fund’s assets. Some projections, using current numbers, promised benefits outstripping tax revenues such that the Trust Fund’s assets may be depleted in just 30 years. But all that’s required are some minor changes in either the pay-ins or pay-outs in the future but Social Security is not part of the alleged Federal deficit crisis. But that has never stopped the modern leaders of our two Parties from raiding the Trust Fund to bankroll the General Fund. But let’s be clear, the trust fund has not been raided - "Raiding" means using the funds to pay other expenses, and thereby depleting the funds. That has not happened. Putting the revenues into Treasury bonds means the money has been lent to the government. By law, since 1939, it must be in invested in securities backed by the U.S. government, which essentially are IOUs. By law, it must be paid back.–Why is that so difficult for some people to understand–? I suspect, the answer to that is that they have no desire to understand it, because they desperately hold to the troglodyte (right-wing) fiction that the funds are "gone" - so they can outright lie to younger people and irresponsibly mislead them into thinking they will never see a dime of their Social Security. That is false in every way and on so many different levels.

FICA taxes only apply to earnings up to an inflation-indexed cap, now at $106,800. Anything you earn above that amount has no FICA tax deducted from it. Raise the cap to $150,000 and the problem is solved.

It started when the SS# was put into the general fund and removed from the so called lock box. There was a pile of money there and the Congress could not keep their eyes off it, and figured out a way to use it .Really doesn`t matter any as to who ,what, because we do know the why.

Again , we vote them into office, and they never leave. Why is it the people mean well ,but keep them in office?

Spocko-you are correct ,up to a point.

The lock box , Trust Fund, is full of the Gov`t I.O.U.`s . The funds are gone and spent, but the little white sheets of gov~t debt. remain.

So, the SS# has now to be paid by the funds being returned, out of the general fund.

As long as every thing goes well, it is well. Let there be a general depression, not enough funds(taxes)going in ,seniors will be hurt.

This is over simplified,of course,

The real point is a simple fact,there is nothing in the So Called Lock Box,The Trust fund,only I.O.U.`S!

Gosnell Worker: Baby Screamed During Live-Birth “Abortion”

... testimony during the murder trial of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell was no less shocking than previous days. Today, a former employee described how she heard a baby scream during a live-birth abortion.

Abortion clinic employee Sherry West described an incident which “really freaked (her) out” and related to the jury how she heard a child who was born alive following an abortion scream.

http://www.lifenews.com/2013/04/08/gosnell-wo...

Court going on now.
Plus; take the Arias trial.
Time & money being wasted on the human dregs of society. Money WE do not have.
libTARDS! doing what THEY do best!

In a Christian world this would NEVER have happened. It IS because we took God out of our schools, courthouses, etc.
No God fearing people, NO knowledge!
