That is a good post. I agree. SS is something I have paid for and not something the government "gives" me and frankly, even if I live to be 100, I would have been better off in a PRIVATE 401-K.

But that is not ;likely just look at the SS law as it satnds. Like we will see the same thing i reformig SS as in the past. Countries have been investing i programs that return no wealth just consume since the 60's and people see what its done overall. The real specail interest are those that consume and return nothing really.That hurts the antion and i the end even SS benficaries.Wanting more of the pie for doig nothing is what has gotten us to this point.
