It looks as if the " Social security Lockbox " is a myth, because Obama is saying he cannot guarantee the payments of Social Security checks and Veterans Benefits without an increase in the debt limit. If there were funds set aside exclusively for those purposes ( 2.7 trillion dollars is our balance in the fund ) then the debt limit makes no difference, nor does a government shutdown. Apparently, they have spent all the money. What gave them the right to take it?
