So it's a matter of "I got mine, Fuck You!" The Republican Motto.I'm for cutting off Social Security for everyone under 25yo - no more AFTER everyone above that who has actually paid into if for at least 20 years gets theirs paid.
The problem is, if you retire at 65 and live to be 72, you will have gotten back everything you paid into it. Now, while I am sure that you think you are a super-duper investor and master of your own fate, my guess is you'd be whining if we cut you off at 72 and your savings were running out.I HAVE PAID INTO SOCIAL SECURITY WITH THE PROMISE IT WOULD BE PROTECTED AND THERE FOR ME WHEN I RETIRE FOR 40 YEARS.
ITS NOT THE GOVERNMENTS MONEY - ITS MINE!
The real problem here is that we live in a society where people regularly live into their 80's. There is more than enough wealth to take care of them, but the rich need to pay their fair share.
