I didn't see Welfare mentioned, now there's money spent poorly! Those of us who have paid into SS are "entitled" to it, no one is entitled to welfare. It came from the Democratic party in the 1960's and it tapped into the money brought in by the SS tax, check history. AND how can politician's tell us that there is no money for future SS payments and give BILLIONS away to foreign countries that hate us??? Riddle me that one.
