    It is to Republicans. Even many on Social Security. Only they don't know it's Social Security. They think it's from "fans".

    Social Security is a bigger and better ponzi scheme than Bernie Maddof ever thought of.

    For all your working life--you and your employer pay 12..4% of your gross wages into this fund. If you're lucky enough to make it to 67 years old they will give you back diddly sqaut on your investment--and should you meet your demise early and are single they simply confiscate your contribution. The Federal Government uses this fund to pay for wars--foreign aid--disaster relief--and about anything and everything other than what it was intended for--the well being of the elderly in this country.

    That's why Rick Perry is right--he won't win election on his stance--because so many are dependent on social security today.

    If you are old, $1,800.00 a month is nothing to sneeze at.

    When Perry was asked about why Texas was last in health care, he said if Obamacare didn't force people to have health care, everyone in Texas would. So, less is "more"?

    Of course, everyone is forced to have car insurance. Oops.
