U.S. Rep. Ron Paul

A Republic, If You Can Keep It

Government housing programs are no more successful than the Federal Government’s medical and education programs. In the early part of this century, government housing was virtually unheard of. Now the HUD budget commands over $30 billion each year and increases every year. Finances of mortgages through the Federal Home Loan Bank, the largest Federal Government borrower, is the key financial institution pumping in hundreds of billions of dollars of credit into the housing market, making things worse. The Federal Reserve has now started to use home mortgage securities for monetizing debt. Public housing has a reputation for being a refuge for drugs, crimes and filth, with the projects being torn down as routinely as they are built. There is every indication that this entitlement will continue to expand in size regardless of its failures. Token local control over these expenditures will do nothing to solve the problem.

Texas Straight Talk

- Trust funds are being robbed, hundreds of billions at stake

So they started taking the money from the trust funds and replaced them with what are essentially "IOUs" from the government. Now, this is referred to as using the funds to "contribute" to the "retirement of the debt." That's a lot like the thief saying he was stealing my wife's belongings so she could "contribute" to his filthy habit.
