What's the difference? Debt is debt, what difference does it make to change the name? Does the problem go away. SS is a ponzi scheme in the truest sense. It's recycled money. No new wealth is created.<quoted text>
It's well past time people stop trying to instill Social Security and Medicare into the national debt. They simply are not synonymous. The Social Security system is an entirely different revenue and disbursement stream. The national debt is attached to the general fund. So intelligence would keep the arguments separate.
All this disinformation concerning Social Security is simply trying to allow Wall Street to have that bundle of money to fill their own pockets.
I am not so sure they are separate. One revenue source is income tax, the other is payroll tax. What ever the source, it ends up at the Treasury and goes from there.
