Social Security and the Debt Ceiling Debate

“In a government shutdown, Social Security checks still go out on time. In an economic shutdown — if we don’t raise the debt ceiling — they don’t go out on time.”President Barack Obama, October 3, 2013

Why would S.S. checks not go out on time if the U.S. doesn’t raise the debt ceiling so that it can borrow more to pay its debts, unless the U.S. had to borrow the money sent out in S.S. checks?

Seems Obama just inadvertently let the cat out of the bag on that one.

The government systematically deceives the public about important issues. The complicit mainstream media serve to manufacture consent for criminal state policies. I expose dangerous mainstream propaganda and empower readers with the knowledge to fight back and create a brighter future. I’m an independent political analyst, journalist, publisher and editor of Foreign Policy Journal, author of several books, and writing coach.
