Raiding Social Security

Uploaded by :

A 3 page paper assessing the (misguided) idea of using Social Security's "surplus" to assist in paying for the ongoing bailouts and multibillion dollar loans the US government is making to companies in the post-Wall Street meltdown. Social Security has no ability to "save" the economy from its current financial nightmares. Its supposed surplus is only an illusion, and it will enter deficit operation in less than a decade.
