Social Security in the red, again. I’m sure this won’t keep happening for the next 20 years.
But there’s absolutely nothing to worry about. As the Wall Street Journal explains:
Many Democrats on Capitol Hill argue that Social Security isn’t in dire shape, in part because the program holds assets in special-issue U.S. Treasury securities.
In other words, no need to sound the alarm. We’re in fine shape, because our government’s obligations are 100 percent backed by… government obligations.
I’m not going to see a penny of what the government has taken from me, am I? That’s not really a question.
Well, you might see a penny.
Well then, it’s totally worth it.
