Why is everybody making a big deal about Madoff's Ponzi scheme while ignoring the biggest one of all?

What's with all this hand wringing over Madoff's lousy $50 billion Ponzi scheme? There's another one that makes Madoff look like a chump, it's called Social Security and it's sponsored by the U.S. government. When are people going to have a hissy fit about that one?
