I was wondering who the Trustees are of the Social Security and Medicare so called trust fund.
Unbelivable who they are: Tim Geithner, Hilda Solis, Kathleen Sebelius, and somebody named Michael Astrue. There are supposed to be 6 trustees, two of which are to be public representatives. Those two public positions are VACANT.
