No, they are a taxed wrapped in verbiage to make the B.S. go down easier.

Welcome to the Ponzi scheme of government promises; shame you didn’t get in on the ground floor.
That has to be the most incorrect and idiotic statement ever to appear on FR. Nobody "willingly" pays FICA, they pay at gunpoint. I did try to get out, and was told "NO". It is a US government enforced ponzi scheme. I don't know your situation, but try not paying FICA/medicare taxes, if you have a taxable income.
