Of course it does add to the deficit. But LBJ started stealing our Social Security in the 1960's and now we are having to pay for the Democratic hoes in Washington. But they are not going to be able to get around paying it. If it means doing away with all other entitlements, SS comes first. I think a Constitutional amendment should have been passed in the 1930's that it could not have been used for anything other than retirement. See folks, we have never lived in the richest county, just a country of rogues.
