...general revenue will cover the lost revenue to the Social Security Trust Fund.

Maybe the first year or two, but I think this is just a way to hasten the Social Security shortfall. No one was buying that Social Security was in dire straights 20-30 years down the road. Saying it is going to have a shortfall in 10 years might get people's attention and their willingness to "save" Social Security.
