social security owns a good part of the gov't debt, more than the fed does even....
it's not broke, the gov't is broke!!!
the fund has up till recently been taking in more money than it had been paying out, which would be put into the treasuries, a nice loan to the
now, a little more is being taking out and not so much is being taking in...
so, well...oh my god!! the gov't has to pay on some of that debt that is owed!!! how horrible!!
default on that debt the, and find out just who out there in the world will be willing to loan the gov't any money!! of course, not so many want to
I've seen people who are getting public assistance in far better shape than me who "can't work" and running around having a grand old time!!
I'll be danged if I am gonna be working till I drop and still pitching in so they can still be enjoying thier carefree life and collecting their
food stamps, hud vouchers, food stamps, plus whatever else is being given away now!!!
I think it's so ironic that the ss program was started after the last depression, because so many people had lost everything, because of basically
the same reasons as this one!!! they wan't to ensure that the people were taken care of, so this was what they came up with...
now, we are in much the same predicament, so many people have lost so much, their homes has dropped in value, their ira's and such are sickening, and
well, oh yes, that's what we need, we need to pull the social security!!
we need to get rid of social security just as soon as those people of working age, who haven't worked hardly at all all thier adult lives, lose their
gravy train and get their butts out there and start fending for themselves!!!
and for your information, those wives out there who are collecting on their hubby's social security grew up in a world where it was expected that
they wouldn't be working (outside of the home) unless it was just to supplement the hubby's income.. heck some of them might even remember an age
when they couldn't even hold a bank account!! they earned less, and even in the mid 80's, in some parts of the country, an employer would hire any
male that applied for a job before they would hire a female, regardless of her qualifications, since well, the man had a family to support!! the
women, well, she had a man taking care of her, or darned should have one!!!
to say these women never worked is not true in the least bit, they did the job that the society assigned to them, they took care of the home, their
hubbies, and their kids....
to be frank, after taking on that job 24/7, working as a die cutter was a vacation for me!!!
