Help. I'm lying and I can't shut up.

"A lot of people in America think there is a trust — that we take your money in payroll taxes and then we hold it for you and then when you retire, we give it back to you,” Bush said in a speech at the University of West Virginia at Parkersburg.

“But that’s not the way it works,” Bush said. “There is no trust ‘fund’ — just IOUs that I saw firsthand,” Bush said.

So there's an easy solution, you a-hole: stop raiding it to pay for other stuff.

And the only reason they can raid Social Security to pay for other stuff is because it runs a surplus. They can use the money for other things because there is actually money there. And the other stuff doesn't run a surplus.

So how come you keep claiming that one of the few government programs that takes in more money than it pays is the one in "crisis"?
