I think we'd all be better off if Washington stayed out of our affairs. Both parties. Don't know how many people recall when Newt Gingrich was pushing for dissolving social security and giving us our money back so we could invest in the stock market. Said it would be better for us. Fast forward several months and the stock market crashed primarily because of poor decisions those in Washington allowed the banks to get by with. Maybe I'm paranoid but I think they saw this coming and this was just a way to kick the can down the road and had we been given our social security funds to invest this would have only delayed the inevitable and we all would have been screwed while those in the know would have walked away smiling.
That would have been the best thing to ever happen if he would have gotten it passed. You would have only lost money if you would have sold in the down turn. You would have made a butt load more as it came up if your Ss money had been in the stick market.
Social security is the biggest scam ever pulled on the American people. It makes me furious to even think about it. It's a welfare program that they disguise by giving every one a little of their money back.
I would let the government keep every dollar I have put in to just let me out of it and be able to put my money in the market going forward. :devil2: :devil2: :devil2: it is no different than obamacare. They should give us the option to opt out or do a self run plan in the market if we would like.
That's the govt slush fund and line of credit so they don't want to let the people be in charge of THEIR money.
