Commission on the Social Security Trust Fund 

Information and Names of Congressional Candidates 

Former President George W. Bush has stated that "All that's left in the Social Security Trust is a cabinet full of IOU's" (June 3, 2005, The New York Times).

United States Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina wrote that "The Trust Fund is empty and has been for years. There is no money in there; just IOU’s. The very concept of a Social Security Trust Fund is not so much a myth as it is a lie." (October 1, 2009, Washington Examiner; http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columns/OpEd-Contributor/Washington-politicians-most-titanic-lie-63102227.html

The United States Chamber of Commerce states on their website, "The government does not save our Social Security taxes for future retirees. Congress borrows this extra money and uses it to make up for deficits elsewhere in the budget. Thus the Social Security trust fund contains nothing but IOUs the government has written to itself." (United States Chamber of Commerce website, http://www.uschamber.com/issues/retirementpension/socialsecurity/trust-fund-myth

A Washington Post Poll, February 10, 2005, found that 90% of the American people know that a reason "the Social Security program faces financial difficulties" is that "Money in the Social Security Trust Fund is being spent on programs other than Social Security."

In his book, The Looting of Social Security, Allan Smith, PH. D. in Economics, explains why the IOU's in the Social Security Trust Fund are worthless. Simply put NO money has EVER been placed in the Social Security Trust Fund. Therefore, there is No money that can be withdrawn - it is simply an accounting gimmick.

The question of whether there is $2.6 Trillion in the Social Security Trust Fund is one of the most important Economic questions facing this Nation.

We, the Coalition for National Referendum, are therefore forming a Commission to investigate and determine whether the $2.6 Trillion has been removed from the Social Security Trust Fund.

Listed below are the Congressional Candidates that agreed to participate in this Commission:

"I have agreed to be a Member of a Commission, formed by the Coalition for National Referendum, to investigate and determine whether the $2.6 Trillion that should be in the Social Security Trust Fund has been removed and not replaced."
