Social Security is self-funded and a very strong system. It has had an annual surplus since the early 1980's. There is almost $3 trillion in a Trust Fund. There was a surplus at the end of 2011; many politicians have lied about this.
Not all Americans pay into this system. The money should not be used by the government to pay for its programs and expenses. This is fraudulent on the part of the US government.
Social Security does not contribute to the deficit. It must not be used to bail out the government debt problems. There should be no cuts to Social Security benefits.
