I'm a white man that's worked all my life. I have worked since I was 12 years old. I have paid into Social Security all my working life. After 18 I spent over half my life defending America while still paying Social Security. I saved and invested my earning wisely. I'm rich by some people's standards but, that does not negate the fact that I paid into that fund most of working life. Now, your stating that I can not or should not get back part of the money I have already paid? Your stating that I should not claim my Social Security but, just let it go to someone else and forget about it? I don't think so!
