Social Security Administration instructs employees to warn recipients about debt ceiling

1:55 PM 10/04/2013


Social Security Administration employees are being instructed to tell people who ask that if the debt ceiling is not raised, their social security benefits could be in danger.

In an email sent Friday, obtained by The Daily Caller, employees are instructed:


“If a member of the public asks whether their Social Security payment will be affected if the federal debt ceiling is not raised, you may give the following response:
‘Unlike a federal shutdown which has no impact on the payment of Social Security benefits, failure to raise the debt ceiling puts Social Security benefits at risk.’


“Direct all program–related and technical questions to your supervisor.”

According to the Treasury, the U.S. will reach its borrowing limit on October 17, and if the debt ceiling is not raised before then, the country will default on its debt.



“In a government shutdown, Social Security checks still go out on time,” President Barack Obama said Thursday, the Huffington Post reported. “In an economic shutdown, if we don’t raise the debt ceiling, they don’t go out on time.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

The hell is he on about? The whole system is automated. The only persons involved are the actual USPS people who pick up and deliver, for those who don't get their SS checks direct deposited.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
