Reagan: Soc Sec has Nothing to Do with Budget

Heard this on Thom Hartmann on the way home
Went and found it to share with you.

Reagan said, “Social Security, let’s lay it to rest once and for all… Social security has nothing to do with the deficit. Social Security is totally funded by the payroll tax levied on employer and employee. If you reduce the outgo of Social Security, that money would not go into the general fund or reduce the deficit. It would go into the Social Security Trust Fund. So Social Security has nothing to do with balancing a budget or raising or lowering the deficit.”

The god of the Republicans have spoken
Please send this to your Republican friends and legislators. 

HEY OBAMA - You listening?????????
