The "Elderly" are the largest single socialist voting block in America.. The ones that should know "don't".. or don't care.. that socialism is Slavery by Government..

The elderly are socialistic because they are informed by the AARP (which is socialistic). Most people on SS believe they are taking out that which they put in, never realizing that after a few years they end up taking out much more than they contributed.

As for turning down the money. Even if someone tried to "prove" that I don't need it, I want it the same as the next person. I believe if you commit to any program and allow people to base their plans on it, then a contract has been created. That is why I agree with the concept that change should be Phased in at the level of the newly employeed. Private accounts are such a program. Means testing and changing the age of collection are not.

This is very true - sometimes tens of thousands of dollars more!
