The very entity institutionalized in our Constitution that is supposed to inform Americans so that the electorate can make informed decisions has become nothing more than a water carrier for those whose fortunes depend on misleading American citizens. (I said that)

This is a staggering scandal for the media. I have yet to see a straightforward, non-ideological, non-argumentative piece in any major paper that describes the actual condition of Social Security.

Social Security’s surpluses have actually offset the impact of the deficit, beginning with Reagan.
