I believe most receive a social security check.
That would be an earned benefit that was not optional.
Romney said the 47% comment and there was an uproar. He was right.
He was also right about Russia.
There’s “government benefits” and then there’s government benefits. Many here, myself included, receive a disability payment from the US Department of Veteran’s Affairs for injuries, wounds, ailments and conditions received as a part of service to the country in uniform. Others get the military retirement they worked for 20 or 30 years to become vested in. Still others get the Social Security retirement they contributed to during their working lives. I do not equate the above with TANF, SNAP, SSDI, unemployment insurance, worker’s compensation, Section 8 or the like, do you?
Detroit is our future unless the crooked DemocRats get voted out.
Get Obama in president ya know! He gave us a phone!
Brings new meaning to...
“Oh waiter, check please!”

Wimsy and Caprice are the new normal..
Speaking of Independence Day, check out Google’s doodle for today.
Looks like magical music day.
No American flags.
No founding fathers stuff.
No red, white and blue.
Still in the chump category over here.
To call Social Security, a mandated theft of part of my lifetime earnings, a benefit is like calling an orange jumpsuit a benefit of being in jail.
Let them dig their own grave. The day is coming where there won’t be a government to protect the looters and moochers from reality.
I could have probably gotten more by just reproducing endlessly.
No thank you.
Link doesn’t work.
Social Security is not a benefit, for those of us who paid into it, for all of our working years.
It IS a benefit, for the lazy, the young girls that can’t say no, for those that have no pride, or just don’t want to do anything with the life they’ve been given.

Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about Welfare running out of money?
What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.
306 million Americans?
I’ve been paying taxes since I was 16, or earlier. I was drafted and served.
I’m now 66, still working and paying taxes, and to hell with anybody that challenges my participation in the rights, responsibilities and benefits of my country.
Any blanket condemnation or classification into just two camps, those who get no benefits (now) and those who do, is a gross oversimplification.
