As someone on Social Security, I do not like when it is implied that I am getting a "handout"! I
and my employers paid into it si9nce I was in high school. Since that time the stock market has
increased in value by at least 20 fold. Because the Federal Government can NOT manage money, SS is now a problem blamed on the people who receive payments. I'll bet MetLife or some other reputable Cos could have done better.
