Don't blame seniors that the money taken from us wasn't invested. I'm tired of hearing how little we paid versus how much we will get back.

One of the reasons seniors receive so much more than they paid in is currency debasement through intentional reducing of the value of our money through money printing. A 70 year old today started working 50 years ago when a typical income was likely around $4000 yearly. As the government printed more money it required to live on because money printing dilutes the value of your money. Of course seniors today are paid more than they paid in, because we have printed three times as much money and each dollar is only worth 1/3 the original value of a dollar. It is a central banking racket and then instead of apologizing for making our currency worth less, there are those blaming social security for paying seniors too much.
