Who is being represented?
The assault on Social Security and Medicare continues by the 113th Congress. It is mostly the Republicans who lead the assault.
The government has “borrowed” from the Social Security Trust for years and according to organizations like the Alliance for Retired Americans and the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare have left worthless IOUs in their place. The Alliance says “Washington politicians are treating Social Security like it’s their piggy bank, to do whatever they want with it.”
The simple fact is this: The Social Security program has always been completely self-funded. It is totally separate from the way our government taxes and spends for any other programs. It has never contributed to the deficit. It seems the radical deficit hawks in Congress have made it a scapegoat.
