Actually if you had held those stocks since 2002, you are probably much better off. Giving it to the government has a negative return for anyone who makes even a lower middle class living. What you get back in a typical lifespan will pale in comparison to what you put in if you have worked consistently. The Social part is short for socialism! The money that goes to the feds doesn't get set aside for SS payments. That was robbed long ago.
