Remember, as ill concived as it was, SSI was created to supplement ones own retirement plan, not to be the retirement plan, and never was intended to be an end all to retirement. Of course the Progressive and the Liberal members of congress and the white house over the years have added or changed entitlements to the program that stripped away the true intent of the SSI program. Originally if you did not work and pay into the program you could not expect a retirement check each month when you reached retirement age, now virtually everyone has a true entitlement even if they did not work or pay into the program. Think about it who created this mess and who is going to fix it, certainly not the Progressives and their liberal allies.
