Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every cent generated by the 1983 Social Security tax increase-money ostensibly earmarked for the retirement of the baby-boom generation-is gone, spent by our government. But most Americans are ignorant of the crime. The emptying of the Social Security Trust Fund is one of the greatest frauds ever perpetrated on the American public by their government...Smith explains the history of Social Security from its inception in 1935 to the present, including the 1983 Social Security fix. Then, step by appalling step, he details how the government's promise to the American people-a pledge to never spend the Social Security funds-was broken by every succeeding administration.

Synopsis:

Every dollar of the $2.6 trillion in surplus Social Security revenue, generated by the 1983 payroll tax hike, has been sytematically, and deliberately, diverted to the general fund and used for non-social security purposes. None of the Social Security surplus revenue has been saved or invested in anything. The Social Security trust fund is essentially empty. It contains no real assets. Beginning in 2016, Social Security will be unable to pay full benefits without a tax incease. In this book, Allen W. Smith, Ph.D.gives a detailed analysis of The Looting of Social Security.
