Social security should be renamed to what it was intended for "retirement". The wealthy and anyone here that hates the retirement aspect of SS should not have and does not need it. Some of us that had to give our lives and body's to some crook that made millions off my sweat and I got paid bird poop for it had no extra income to play the stock market gambling game or anyother money making gambling game, need SS or like I say retirement.
Where the problem is, is the people that have not earned the retirement, you cut them out not the ones that worked for it. I wish they would have taken more SS out of my checks and way less income tax. All they got to do is take more ss out of paychecks, at least you are banking that money in a sense, you don't bank income tax.
Your understanding of SS is apparently weak.
It was not for retirement, it is funded as a pay as you go system, IE, your SS deductions while working financed those would reached entitlement while you were contributing. Your kids will pay yours. You if you live to avg age, you will get more then you contributed, Its a PONZI scheme that was sold to simple mined gullible public at time when the public was in desperate straights, avg lifespan in 1930 was 63, payments started at 65, it was not for retirement, is was to keep people from having to eat cat food.
It socialism, pure and simple, but so is the public school board, the public library system, the police department, the DOT, the Post office, The FDA, Medicare, etc, the list is long, but waste your time attacking Saul somebody if it makes you feel better pointing all your fellow comrade socialists.
