Haven't SS collections simply gone into the general fund since 1968, in order to fund his welfare-state and Viet Nam without presenting a giant deficit? Johnson's last hurrah, if I'm not mistaken. If there's nothing there but IOUs backed by nothing, what's to loot? I'll need to learn a lot more about Social Security if I'm to even believe Greider's premise, let alone his conclusion.
