Skip to comments.Government To The Rescue : Your Social Security (video)
Posted on 02/13/2013 7:46:22 PM PST by skoob2u
A 1950's film promoting how the government and social security will save the elderly. Just a friendly reminder that if it sounds to good to be true...well , you know the rest.
and I just signed up to start collecting my social security...bah!!!!!!!!!
Frankly, as someone who paid into it and is now disabled, I don’t know what I would do without it. Guess I could just quietly go off somewhere and die.
Love Uncle Sam and the vault. Funny they didn’t show congress taking out the money in wheelbarrows.
“Frankly, as someone who paid into it and is now disabled, I dont know what I would do without it.”
SS was a great idea, the original concept of a trust fund was good. When FedGov started giving benefits to those who never paid in, things started to go south. Heading toward bankruptcy.
I heard and have not verified that FDR intended SS to become privatized around 1963, when the communists started their revolution here.
I hope Soshacurity stays solvent for you. You earned it!
Yep! I just signed up too. Turn 62 next week. I might be denied if I try and wait till 65.
So everybody understands, I’m not knocking social sec. I just found the video to be a great example of how government overstates the benefits of their programs. I truly don’t anticipate ever getting a ss check myself.
Oh I fully expect my SS benifit to be cut in the future. It will be means tested and anyone with any income at all will be denied/cut. By the way when I signed up that office looked like a freak show. Only three of us were over 60 and the rest were just a bunch of able bodied street scum trying to get their free s**t. Sickening!
I turned 64, middle of this January.
