Politics entered the program when Congress started robbing the Social Security "trust fund" 50 years ago. The fact is that payroll taxes have collected over $2 Trillion MORE than the system has paid out. Do you not understand that?
If you think that repealing the payroll tax cut will keep Social Security from going broke, then you simply don't understand what is happening and all you're doing is repeating partisan talking points.
