Social Security is NOT supposed to be part of the US Budget. It is a separate fund that is taken from workers paychecks and set aside for worker retirement and those with disabilities. Unfortunately Congress seems to think it is their money. They have taken from this fund and they need to pay it back. The fund belongs to the WORKING PEOPLE of the USA NOT CONGRESS. It is not broke. The wealthy only pay into it up to $180,000 of their income and they need to pay in on their entire income.
