When President Johnson took Social Security from its private fund status and placed it into the “general fund,” that was the beginning of the end for this worker-funded program. Crooked politicians decided that this was an opportunity to “steal” from the hard-working American worker’s retirement - and they did!
It is now referred to as an entitlement. How absurd!
There are people receiving Social Security benefits who never paid a penny into it. (Undocumented immigrants, for example). It is a true testament to how Washington, D.C. cares about the hard-working people of this country. It truly is time for Washington to get shaken up and get back to honesty in government for the people. Shame on special interest groups and the politicians involved in this theft.
