    They are statistically the most wealthiest, by age group.

    It's a reverse progressive taxation scheme.

    old rules slowly apply alot less. sorry MediScarers.
    My friend CPWILL you are wrong again When rubio was campaigning it was over a year ago...since the nov election the climate has changed and what changed it was Govs like Rick Scott and the other teaparty newly elected govs that raped the middleclass and either cut taxs for the rich and corporations or tried and failed...plus all the rhetoric from the teaparty take from the middle class and give to the rich...and Ryans failed plan....trust if rick scott ran today he would lose by a landslide and rubio may very well not be a senator although he would have a much better chance of being elected than scott..

    I know quite a few people on SSI, it provides for a poverty (I mean broke) lifestyle and unless you cheat the system, you will forever be on tons of supplemental government assistance.
    If you're born with a birth defect that prevents you from earning any type of income, SSI barely keeps your head above water.

    Except that money does not go to an account, where it is saved for you.
    It is spent, on your behalf by the government, now.

    Meaning that, you reap some benefits of the taxes you pay, soon after you pay them.
    It's essentially double dipping.

    Otherwise, our government would be carrying a large (potentially trillion dollar) surplus.

    No, you can fund FICA without paying taxes, depending on your income and deductions. So again if you draw SS funded by FICA you contributed to your own benefits, if your drawing benefits funded by someone else your on Welfare. Call it like it is.

    Your absolutely right Harry..everything you said was fact....the average SS payment is a whopping 1100 a month...its not the SS recipients that worked and paid into SS thats breaking it....its all the freebies that have been added to it...

    Spouses that never worked....children under 18 of a deceased parent....hes the one I love...If a man marries and remains married at one time it was just 9 months now I believe its two years..10 times...all 10 wives collect his social security...that is the kind of crap that has broken SS.
