Congresswoman Marcy Canter Warned About The Raid Of The Social Security Trust Fund 15 Years Ago

“The truth is that House Republican leaders have turned their back on America’s senior citizens and are raiding billions every day from our Social Security trust fund. …The total raid has run now to over $235 billion. That averages out to about $837 for every single American who will qualify for Social Security. When I first came to this floor 4 weeks ago, they dipped into the Social Security trust fund to a raid of $208 billion, and in just 4 weeks, that has gone up an additional $27 billion.” — US Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, July 9, 2002
