    Social Security is mandatory.

    It's not like Paul can simply get off SS, especially at this age. He could return the money but at past 70 you automatically get distributions. At least that's what I understanding.

    Paul's not a hypocrite for getting distributions he has to take.

    You forgot means testing. I know it is not popular now, but would be one way to reduce expenditures.
