Gee..if social security is finanically sound like they say, why do they need money? why are donations not tax deductible? why do they criticize the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy and claim it's the biggest reason 'behind our historic national debt" and not just excessive borrowing and paying all that interest?
It leads me to believe they have an agenda...and helping support medicare and social security, is not it! oh..btw, here is some of the staff. do they seem non-partisan? hell no! Needless to say, they won't be getting a dime of my money!
