I understand the frustration of Speaker of the House John Boehner when it comes to entitlement programs. What I don't understand is how Social Security and Medicare are the major problems. However, I would like to know how much money Boehner paid in Social Security taxes before he became a millionaire and before he became a member of the House.
It appears that the Republican Party hates Social Security because they removed $200 billion from the fund in 2003 to pay the initial bill for the war in Iraq. My suggestion would be that since the Republicans removed the money and have no plan to repay the fund plus interest, maybe there should be a lien on their payroll checks to pay off the Social Security fund.
