My Social Security was paid for by ME during the 50 Years I worked and paid into it. You F&^%^ Moronic Retarded Imbeciles have not one iota of common sense. Social Security Funds were transferse into the General Fund to subsidize the Welefare system. Retired WORKERS paid into the fund, Damokraps robbed the SS fund to buy lazy basturd votes. If I were to give up my Social Security Dividens it would be to Rand Paul. !

You and I paid in some money into SS because we had no choice - it was a tax. The SS money was always used to buy votes and welfare. Both D and R raided the cookie jar. Suggest you get over it --- we are all screwed.

Agree, but with a couple caveats

(1) All of us seniors did pay into the Ponzi scheme that is Social Security,a d we deserve to be repaid. However, what we don't deserve is to get back many multiples of what we "invested." My own father died at 91, and collected about $20 for every dollar he paid. That's wrong. Everyone pays their fair share, but everyone receives no more than their fair share.

(2) Sorry VDH, while I agree that it is unfair that seniors get discounts they probably don't need, don't even tell me that after working my way to the front of the line for 62 years that NOW you want to change the rules.

and my parents paid into it for forty/fifty years and one collected for about eight years the other not at all. Many do not collect or collect only a small portion of what they paid into it.
