Yes you are right, remember the SS privatization that the Republicans and bush wanted to shove up our butts but it was fought by the people? I can only imagine with the down fall of the markets we will be bailing out China and their investments in SS, because they were the ones to bid for that venture.
But hey When was the last time that we had a real government and president that really worked for the tax payer and the working force in the nation?
You do of course realize that Social Security is broken and bankrupt right? They spend the social security money we pay them right away.
CONDITIONS TO QUALIFY FOR RECEIPT OF OLD-AGE BENEFITS (Sec. 210c):

3. Wages were paid to individual on some day in each of 5 years after December 31, 1936, and before age of 65.
[Note: monthly salaries listed are from $50 - $250]
Old-Age Reserve Account in the United States Treasury. The Secretary of the Treasury submits annual estimate to Budget of appropriation to be made to account; and invests funds which draw interest at 3 percent (sec. 201).
Social Security Board determines the qualifications of the individual and amount of benefits payable (sec. 202a); certifies to Treasury persons entitled to payments (sec. 207).

"All for one and one for all". Politicians, corporate leaders & bankers are all the same. They want you to choose sides and fight each other in their name. Keeps you busy while they line their pockets and laugh at how stupid you all are behind your back. Wake the *@#$ up people. We lost Washington a long time ago and they have been @ss raping us ever since!
This is quite possibly one of the most important threads you'll ever read on ATS. Bravo, OP. Your efforts are duly noted.
