"...many examples of wasteful government spending that could be better used to preserve and protect Social Security"
The government has a spending problem, not a revenue collection problem, but Obama refuses to budge on eliminating any of the trillions of spending he's introduced.
The Republicans proposed a budget that was voted down on party lines, but the press never reported that the Obama budget was _also_ voted on that same day and was defeated by a unanimous, bipartisan vote. Republicans are coming up with solutions to the problem. Obama and his Democrat cronies refuse to compromise.
The Democrat budget? They haven't produced a budget in two years. That's fiscal irresponsibility for ya.

Like the murder of unborn children. Eliminate government funding of Planned Parenthood and you can kill (if you'll pardon the expression) two birds with one stone.
