Chris Christie’s Retirement Fund Hypocrisy

esquire.com​The staff at the Café worked all morning cleaning up from last night’s late, post-debate rush. At one point, one of our countermen found a beer-sodden early edition of a newspaper in one of the booths. In it was an account of Chris Christie’s performance in the debate on Wednesday night.

Christie argued for that point in the debate by claiming that Social Security’s trust fund has been emptied. The trust fund is where all of the money that workers forfeit in taxes with every paycheck they cash is kept, in order to pay out future benefits. “It’s not there anymore. The government stole it and spent it,” Christie said. “All that’s in that trust fund is a pile of IOUs for money on they spent on something else a long time ago.”
