As a baby boomer who is about to receive Social Security, I am sick and tired of all the politicians saying we have to fix Social Security. There is only one fix -- pay back all the IOUs from the decades of raids on the fund.
This fund was set up with people's FICA taxes and was to be here for our retirement. It was not intended for "pork" and balancing the budget.
Another interesting point is the fact that employers pay matching FICA funds. Why don't we hear a peep out of businesses about their money going where it wasn't intended?
