Not sure of the exact number, but in the 1930s, for every person withdrawing, 42 paid in. Within a few decades it will be 1:2. I have no problem with the government assisting the disabled and truly needy, but retirement at 65 is going to have to be a thing of the past

    That I do, boo. I learned from the right wing whack-o-loons that any form of government regulation of commerce is socialism.

    Definately Taft.

    He was the last guy real man to be president (ie Have facial hair).
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Sorry, I was referring to the elederly. And yes, that's the gist of it. You couldn't withdraw retirement benefits until you were 65. The life expectency was about 62
