It's far worse. The way the gov't. treats Soc. Sec. is just like if I were to take out a huge 401k loan, with no intention of ever repaying it, to pay off my credit cards, but then keep on buying $hit I don't need, racking up huge balances, getting crushed by just the minimum payments and then refusing to admit I have a problem. That's exactly how gov't. treats Soc. Sec.
