     Kennelly is president of the National Committee to Preserve Social 
Security; Causey is communications director for the group. Kennelly said 
today: "Social Security has not contributed one thin dime to the current 
deficit. It should not be used as a 'piggy bank' to pay our way out of 
the fiscal hole we find ourselves in. Social Security has its own 
dedicated source of revenue and it is fully financed for decades to 
come. In fact, Social Security is the only major government program that 
has been running sustained surpluses over the years, and this has helped 
mask the true size of the real deficit."

     The National Committee to Preserve Social Security recently 
released a document titled "The National Commission on Fiscal 
Responsibility and Reform: 'Social Security is Not the Trouble; It's 
Just the Target.'"
