All the f these arguments are not valid since the Congress helped themselves, read stolen, to over one trillion $ from the SSI fund. They have never even mentioned paying it back or telling us what they used the money for. Let's not forget that that fund was tax money from all wage earners over their entire working life. Now the government wants to change SSI since it is costing too much government money. Bull shit we, the working class, has paid their money Into it. SSI I s not a government give away, it is a self funded program. Maybe increasing the deficit is the only way only way congress can pay the money back they flat out stole plus the interest we would have earned.
