How about a small amount of common sense instead.
Do you disagree that the majority of Americans live pay check to pay check?
Do you disagree that the majority of Americans have debt instead of savings?
What would all the millions of disabled and elderly do if they did not get their check?
Some would find their way to homeless shelters. Some would be able to live with their children.
I tell you what... you tell me what they will do.
And why do you insinuate that i am female or homosexual?
I am neither.
Is caring about the elderly a female trait to you?
I know about 150-200 people on Social Security. At least 100 of them would be on the street within 2 months. Several shack up with someone and just hand over their check.
If a person is not capable of working and is approaching a time in their life where soon they wont be able to take care of themselves, what would they do? Where do they live? How do they eat?
Once they can no longer take care of themselves, even retirement homes would not take them without that check.
I can not imagine what your answer might be.
Saying they should of been rich people and its their own fault, is simply not a solution.
YOu talk like man with no brains. I paid Social security all my working life.
Estimates are now that if they took all the money I paid in to Social Security from my checks and the interest earned from my deductions, I will get back 70% of that money if i live to be 80 years old. Medicare and Social Security are not socialism. I paid for it and it is mine, as did all who get Social Security and Medicare. It is the same thing as paying for private medical insurance or retirement.
Are you interested in Paying your medical insurance premiums monthly and not getting medical insurance? This is exactly the type of question that your pole is asking.
Right wing radicals spend to much time on BS trying to figure out how to screw the American People. I understand that you are ready to anything to destablize USA, and get the rich, Richer.
it is unsustainable as it is
current work pool paying for retired pool is fine until baby boom retires, and work pool declines
they monies given in over ones lifetime is spent the year they gave it, not saved for your retirement years
its pass the buck ponzi bull****
and it must be fixed or scrapped
I have mixed emotions about my SS..........As a young man we were always told that by the time we reached retirement age SS would be gone so I planned accordingly for my retirement.........Well when I reached retirement age surprise it was still there so I am drawing it now and it supplements my income...........
Would I give it up? Only if there were strict guidelines and close supervision where the SS fund would go and what it would be used for......

I didn't insinuate you are male, female, or transgender. Everyone knows what Woman's Intution means and, had I said Men's Intuition, everyone would have said, 'what the hell is Men's Intuition'.And why do you insinuate that i am female or homosexual?
I am neither.
