Agreed, but all entitlements should be cut. Including SS. There simply aren’t enough young people working and the young people aren’t making enough to support the current benefits scheme.
This whole bag of SS has been turned into nothing but a government scavenger bag. Cut off any and all who did not put anything as much as a penny into SS. Sorry for any, including children and elderly who didn’t give a dime or squat about getting what was taken from somebody else. Make these people subject to an out in the open welfare program. Give the people paying in today reasonable/market return on their money put into the system as was the original promise. Admit it, government has conned and cheated SS payees to get political power through votes. Where is any honest elected official on this societal sore?
Then give me back the $183,000 I paid in and return the employer’s share to them.
I’ll handle my own retirement funds.
