    Sorry, EarlZ, but what about the deadbeats who've never worked a day in their life and are living off what I pay in income tax? I'm well aware of why I'm not drawing Social Security, Earl, and I don't think you heard me whining. I'm not a liberal.

    And, of course, Social Security recipients are entitled to what they get. Right up until the minute the government decides not to honor the agreement. Then, they're screwed. Of course, a lot of Americans want to deny SS benefits to foreigners who worked and paid into SS, too.

So $500 a month is a pitance. Even if they are living in their childs home, there is still money needed for personal care, food, clothing, and possibly chipping in for heat and electric. So a mere few hundred isn't going to go very far.
    I know, but that's all they get. People on SSI get less than $700 a month. Currently, SS is not being adjusted for cost of living increases. But the point is, they paid even less into the system to begin with.

    SSI is $674 for individuals and $1011 for couples but I'm not sure states don't add to that. I know people on SSI who were drawing more than that. They are also eligible for Medicaid, Section 8 housing, and other government benefits. I live in Mexico and we get a few people on SSI because the cost of living here is cheaper.

    Re: Are Seniors Lazy Parasites

    The problem with Social Security is Washington. SS was started to supplement peoples retirement so they didnt fall into poverty and have the govt pay for them anyway. Then it got all prostituted.
    If 2 psychologists say your nuts at 30 yrs old you can get disability SS for the rest of your life and after 2 yrs you can get medicare. If your an alcholic at 25 and hire binder and binder...you will get disability social security and again after 2 yrs you can get medicare. if you have aids you can disablitly SS...and on and on and on ...some states its much easier to get disability social secuirty than others...Id bet half of west virginia is on disability social secuirty and they still cut down trees and go hunting and fishing.

    NO ONE is addressing the real problem with social security and that is disability social security...For those that dont know Disability social security is based on what you wouild recieve at age 65. Heres one of my favorites...If a man is married 8 times to 8 women for over 9 mths each...ALL 8 of his x wives collect his social security whether they worked or not.....now lets get into why these people are getting SS...because if they dont the govt will pay through the nose to take care of them anyway and they knew it....what do you do with 8 X wives that never worked and are now old ladies..get the picture folks ???
    The teaparty doesnt mention the problems with SS that everyone knows..because they do not want to fix them..the morons want to abolish it like they believe it wont cost them more in the long run....

    No, but there is a disconnect here.
    The money was paid in to the system's general revenues and spent on those same people near immediately after the taxes were paid, they are obviously owed nothing, if we're really counting dollars in and dollars out.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Some are - absolutely.

    Some aren't - absolutely.

    Much in the same way some welfare and other recipients are or are not lazy leeches on society.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I understand and I don't have a choice to pay into it either, it's not right.

    I don't call people parasites.
    It doesn't do anything to help anyone.
