Our Social Security Money in Iraq

Aug 25, 2008

The politicians, Republican and Democrat, all want us to believe that Social Security is running out of money. Not true. Next year, Social Security is projected to run a surplus of over 100 BILLION dollars.

Rather than either cut Social Security taxes or use that money for retirees, the politicians are using the surplus to help pay for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

That’s our retirement money they are blowing up in those wars!
