We baby boomers had no choice but to PAY for SS Medicare because it was a FORCED tax automatically TAKEN from our checks.
At least we PAID into the system. Then the Govt spent it on PET projects for their districts.
There are untold millions who NEVER worked a day in their lives that get TONS of free stuff.
Why is it the SS people who worked and paid into the system for 50 + years like me, are told WE are the PROBLEM and have to take a hit WHEN UNTOLD MILLIONS WHO NEVER WORKED EVER get MORE free stuff. I personally know 6 people who get SS disability for back/mind probs and they play golf, tennis and think just fine. OF COURSE there are people who are REALLY sick.
