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.
Its the latter. The idea that the payroll tax cut is somehow harming Social Security is an absurd talking point. The tax cut is funded out of the general fund and doesn't affect SS at all.
Just goes to show you though, you'd better not get between an old man and his government checks, or there'll be hell to pay.
