Local conservative blogger 24th State is over on Twitter making absolutely no sense in a lament about Social Security.

Social Sec. and Medicare Boards of trustees blame “recession” on shortfalls (via @agoodeye)

Well, yeah. A recession generally means fewer jobs and less income, which means less payroll tax going into Social Security. By the same token, when the economy improves, more jobs and more income follows, and more payroll tax receipts shore up Social Security.

But when asked about this

@erichoffpauir – I was thinking about the long term trend, where I pay. 15% for 40 years and get nothing.
