$234,000 is less than six years of benefits for the typical baby momma on welfare, food stamps and WIC.

I'm not sure what you intended by that particular comparison, but I was thinking in terms of a straight comparison of SS retirement benefits paid out, versus FICA paid in -- in deflated dollars. Someone's dollars paid into the system in 1966, say, would be worth about six times the value of the dollars paid in during the 80's, and still more than the 90's and 2007 dollars (2007 dollars were worth one 1950 dime each).
