tax revenues not from Social Security thru 2018 showed no surplus. SS show a surplus and since they dont put the money in fort knox and are unwilling to give it to me to invest :) they put it in the general fund for 2% interest to cover general spending.
Thyis spending can be used to lower national debt (good) or cover current and future spending (bad) either way I will be working for walmart until I hit the floor and die. Unless My kids make good and my wife leaves me then I can be found in a tent at mile 71.5 of Hiway 1 Alaska.
