So you stop taking the money once you reached your contributions plus expected interest?

Do you shred the checks (that would keep coming otherwise) and say goodbye to your family when the last penny is accounted for?

Should people look at their fund and say to themselves "I put in X amount of money at y interest and that balance would now be zero. I may be 80 and my doc said I am in good enough health to live another 10 years, but I'll stop cashing the checks so I can slowly go bankrupt and starve to death while ignoring my health care."

Ayn Rand couldn't do it, and she was one of the most outspoken advocates against them. She consumed huge amounts of money for her lung cancer at the least.

SS is something American seniors are entitled to because they pay into that fund. It isn't a welfare program.

The GOP says it is, along with a ponzi scheme.

All that means is they were people who worked for a living. And were forced to pay for the forced government retirement plan.

Also explains why 70% don't support any changes to social security or medicare.

We can balance the budget with minimal changes to either of those programs, and significant cuts in our bloated military spending, while raising taxes slightly on each individual, more on the rich seeing as they've gotten more tax breaks over the last 10 years then any other group.
