It is a political "hot button" issue.
The money goes into a SS Trust Fund. To run the country, Congress authorizes loans from the Trust Fund to pay what is necessary to run the country.
The problem is that Congress borrows but never pays back.
The "trouble" is that the projections that the SS Trust will be bankrupt and unable to meet its obligations. Those estimates continue to get closer.
Yours is a great question to ask both of your U.S. Senators and your Representative in Congress. You can write the same question to each of them - let me know what they say! Click here and here for links to your representatives.
Good luck, and vote in the next election! It's important. Too many people don't and issues like this are at stake.
... and no, you can't sue anyone.
