bucky, did you know that your Bushgod has used your FICA payments to fund some of your favorite causes? No, of course you didn't know that.
Bush is using your FICA payments to fund such things as the war in Iraq and tax cuts for the wealthiest 1%.
Look at this bucky.
"To make sure the retirement savings of America’s seniors are not diverted in any other program, my budget protects all $2.6 trillion of the Social Security surplus for Social Security, and for Social Security alone."
--President George W. Bush, State of the Union Address, February 27, 2001Transcript
Bush is hands down the all-time world champion spender of Social Security Trust Funds. When he was running for office in 2000, he declared, "We're going to save Social Security by not spending the Trust Fund." Since taking office, however, he has masked the size of his record budget deficits by taking money from-you guessed it-the Social Security Trust Fund.
Last year the heist amounted to $160 billion. Since he took office, Bush has quietly spent over $640 billion of the Trust Fund's money in this way.
Do you think FDR intended FICA funds to pay for the reconstruction of Iraq?
