"The trustees of Social Security recently reported that the retirement system can pay full benefits until 2035 .. (and then) it will be able to pay about three-fourths of promised benefits. That is not a crisis .. "

If they paid back what they've stolen since 1965 and stopped giving away benefits to people who never paid a dime into it, we'd have enough to double everyone else's SS payments!

I agree Jack, it makes my stomach turn just to think how hard i worked and paid into the system and then see one who did nothing............... but still collect what i labored for and then they complain because they think they should get more.......... I even meet foreigners here in the philippines who did nothing and even though their check is not that large but still enough to live here......

The system sux, I can document having paid into it every year since I was 14 years old...of course not much in the early years.  I have the unfortunate displeasure to know people who have lived in welfare housing all their life, had baby s once a year, get a check for having them, have free medical and food stamps (or what ever they are doing now) ...drive new cars, and eat better than I did...give back to the country and state...zero...worth as a human being...zero....yet we continue to pay them, continue to coddle them...Its more fun in America....Lee
