To be perfectly honest with you, I think that Social Security is unneeded! I understand that retirement is important and that many people rely on Social Security to survive, but I don’t think that the government should have gotten involved in the first place!
This whole Social Security thing seems like this country is leaning more towards Socialism and Democracity! The government shouldn’t be involved in these domestic issues. I think that the whole country would be a lot more responsible if they were required to put money into a 401k or retirement fund.
Social Security might have been needed in the 50’s, right after the war, but now, there is no need for it; Americans should be responsible for themselves.
Also, what is up with all of those people that have NEVER worked a day in their life, therefore never putting a cent into Social Security, but still collecting Social Security, as that is their American right! Can you say LAME! But the other thing is, if I put in $10 dollars this week, when I go to collect in 50 years, inflation will mean that that $10 wont be worth the same! Leading to a defecit in the fund!
I suppose that this whole speel could be because I KNOW that when it is time for me to take out my fair share of the fund, it wont be there!
I feel like suing the government!
That’s my opinion, I welcome yours… (I feel like Fred Nutter)
