Tim Ryan: Tax increase hypocritical

I think it's important to realize at this stage that the problems with Social Security, particularly its SSDI and SSI disability programs, are now greater than just the fact that almost the entirety of the Social Security fund has been borrowed to supplement general tax revenues. As of recently, it has been determined that the money being paid in through FICA tax contributions is actually less than the total amount of benefit payments, which is the real root of the widespread media panic about the programs' insolvency.
