I want SS to do what it was intended to do, be a supplement and I don't want the Federal Govt. using the funds to pay for daily govt. operations
For some reason you don't believe that those Govt. IOU's have to be funded. Based upon the 4 trillion budget, the 18.2 trillion in debt, and the trillions owed to retirees, where does the govt. come up with that cash?
What exactly do you mean that the unified budget isn't a problem? Have we really come to this where you don't understand long term obligations?? Do you really want your SS "contributions" to go to daily govt. operations?
Why don't you do your own calculations and see how much money you would have at retirement if you took your money and your employers and put it in a simple savings account with historical interest rates over your 35 year working career?? Would that money be yours and your families. or the governments?
