Stop war, fund Social Security

In all the political talk of the domestic economy and the cost of the Iraq war, I haven't heard anyone ask these politicians of both parties why they keep saying the Social Security program is going to run out of money by such-and-such a date. It seems to me that they have been borrowing money from that fund ever since they started putting it into the general fund.

They keep "borrowing" the money from the Social Security fund and have never paid a dime back. I think it is about time for the press to start asking the questions that would show up these overpaid people governing the masses. I doubt you could get a straight, honest answer out of any of them.
