Social Security, deficit, budget
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.

So Social Security has nothing to do with balancing a budget or lowering the deficit.
