Social Security Lies
The Truth Squad
The fact that scare tactics used since Social Security’s creation has left many Americans worried about it’s future says more about the effectiveness of political propaganda than the true conditions of Social Security’s finances. As Franklin Delano Roosevelt famously said: “Repetition does not transform a lie into truth”; however, it certainly can misinform. Contrary to Senator Rand’s assertion, Social Security is NOT broke or broken and young people do not support cutting the program’s benefits. In fact, the Recession Generation understands all too well the need for the stable and reliable income Social Security provides for millions of Americans who’ve contributed to the system.
