    Back in 1983, we made a deal regarding the Social Security fund.

    The deal was this: for 30 years working people would overpay their taxes, building up the trust fund and helping lower the taxes of the rich. For the next 30 years, rich people would overpay their taxes, drawing down the trust fund and helping shoulder the burden of the baby boomer retirement.

    Well, the first 30 years are about up. And now the rich are complaining about the deal that Alan Greenspan cut back in 1983. They have our money and given a choice they would prefer to not pay it back out to us.
