Nobody even noticed or protested.
I know some people who lied about their age when they became citizens. Said they were 10 years older than actual. After only 25 years of paying in they'll be collecting "full" social security benefits at age 57 and will probably collect for 30 years instead of the usual 20 years. So much gaming and/or cheating the system.
People here may not know illegals as I do and they frequently can file using an ITIN not a Social Security Number. They can get the "earned income credit" for each child they have ($3378), a free money gift courtesy of our Uncle Sam.
A Reality check for all of those trapped on the Liberal plantation like my father was, scared that if they didn't keep the Democrats the Republicans would kill Social Security.
Absolute and total bullshit
From Snopes: "The Social Security Trust Fund was established in 1939 to receive monies collected for Social Security through payroll taxes. The monies in this fund are managed by the Department of the Treasury; they are not, nor have they ever been, put into the “general operating fund.”https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/social-security-changes/ "It shall be the duty of the Secretary of the Treasury to invest such portion of the amounts credited to the Account as is not, in his judgment, required to meet current withdrawals. Such investment may be made only in interest-bearing obligations of the United States or in obligations guaranteed as to both principal and interest by the United States."
Despite the semantics, the SS money has indeed been tapped (or looted) to pay general expenditures.
