Social Security

Social Security simplified

Quick hits try and mislead Americans. 


🤑 The federal government most certainly does help fund Social Security. The interest government pays on Treasury bonds is essential to paying benefits. 

🤑 Social Security is funded by workers and their employers. 

🤑 The Social Security trust holds about $2.8 trillion in special Treasury bonds. So yes, Social Security is a creditor of the federal government (just like China and many Americans)

🤑 What’s this anti-Social Security thing about? It’s no secret where the debt is and what is the point in any case?
