I would tell Mak that I suggest that Atlas should shrug, go get his EBT card and Obamaphone head out to Colorado where he can smoke a joint while waiting in line for his Obamacare doctor to put him on permanent Social Security Disability after that he can head out to Washington State and marry his life partner Hercules where they can raise their eugenically created daughter Julia as a slave to government programs and assistance perpetuating the cycle of dependency.
The big problem with taking Social Security retirement is being forced onto Medicare, while that is becoming rationed. I’m begging older relatives to work if they can or retire but stay off Social Security and Medicare as long as possible - so that they can still get quality medical care.
Yet I saw an article today on how the elderly on Medicare are perfect for the adjusted, full time reduced to part time jobs. They cannot work full time because they’ll lose too much Social Security, but are cheap for employees because they have Medicare and thus don’t need health insurance. So old people are in the best position - to get both federal money and the remaining part time jobs.
