The End of the Gravy Train

For those of you that care, and anyone living in the United States really should care, the Social Security surplus vanished in February. In that month Social Security paid out more in benefits then it took in via payroll taxes.

I’m sure the economic downturn had something to do with this. The hope should be that once the economy picks back up the surplus will return. If it does don’t count on it being long term. To those that kept chiming that Social Security would be fine until the 2040’s, who is the joke on now? That’s right, the United States taxpayers.
