I have paid into SS my entire working life by force. I am a few years away from Social Security. I understand that I will likely never see it.
The seniors in this country who have worked all their lives and by force had to pay into Social Security are DUE their payout. I do not begrudge them that at all and at age 65.
What I resent is government workers who retire at 50 and get full benefits at THAT age for the next 40 or 50 years at taxpayer expense. Let’s talk about the fairness of THAT.
Everyone should get his SS benefits, but we must raise the age at which people can receive them. Very, very few people will consider doing this, and this mentality has paved the way for more socialism.
