my social security is not an entitlement, it is earned just like unemployment pay (when not abused for 99 weeks) because it was taken from my income without my consent. if i had a choice i would have NEVER opted for social security. cut welfare, entitlements, food stamps and other parasitic payments.
“my social security is not an entitlement, it is earned just like unemployment pay”
Not true. Your SS is an entitlement because the money being provided to today’s recipient is being taken out of working people’s income.
“because it was taken from my income”
True. You did have SS funds stolen from you to give to others throughout your working career. The problem is that those at that time felt an entitlement to make a claim to your income. Now you feel entitled to make a claim to other people’s income.
It is a broken system and if any private investor did the same thing that our government is doing, then they would name them Madoff or Ponzi....
The entire SS system is evil and heartbreaking.
