Background on Social Security Linkfest for North Carolina US Congressional and Senatorial Interviews and Races

If there’s trillions of dollars difference
between publicly outstanding debt investors can buy and sell
and non-marketable intragovernmental debt
who is it owed to
who has to pay how much more back and when
and why would those who know or should and don’t
let the country borrow trillions from itself
and why are most Americans unaware?

I disagree with Bernie Sanders on this

http://hartzman.blogspot.com/2014/02/i-disagree-with-bernie-sanders-on-this.html

Some in our country think that Social Security is a trust fund
in other words there's a pile of money being accumulated…
because you put money in the government saves it for you
and then when you retire you get it out…

That's just simply not true

The money, payroll taxes going into Social Security, are spent

They're spent on benefits and they're spent on government programs

There is no trust

We're on the ultimate pay-as-you-go system…

The only thing Social Security has is a pile of IOUs
from one part of government to the next…
therefore when you have more retirees living longer for greater benefits
with fewer people paying in
the system inevitably will go into the red

George W Bush

President Barack Obama's myRA savings plan appears to be a Ponzi scheme; George Bush, Ron Paul, Paul Krugman etc...

"The economy is a Ponzi scheme."

If Bernard Madoff
distributed money received from new investors to older investors
until there wasn’t enough money to continue
does Social Security operate under the same structure
with mandatory participation?

'Creative' accounting hurts future generations"

If Social Security taxes were increased in 1983
to ease the burden of a smaller generation
tasked with providing benefits to a larger number of longer living elders
why would elected leaders borrow and spend the surplus?
