Social Security was meant for you to retire at 55. It wasn't supposed to make sure that you could live big.... just that you could meet your bills. With the government changing the rules ( borrowing money and taking it out of the SS trust fund and rolling it into the general so they have access to the monies paid in) is it any wonder that the retirement age is 67 and you only get half of what you were supposed to get? Any time the government gets its mitts into anything it WILL NOT END WELL for citizens

If you worked and were not into social security but a private retirement account then you worked 2nd jobs and paided into social security then retire and worked 20 years till you turned 66 and put into it. When you do put in for social security they tell you only get half of it. Who gets your other half?

The average person on social security receives less than $1,500 a month.So the only way you can get $35,000 to $40,000 is if the Democrats pass a bill stating "from now on each year has between 30 to 35 months". I'm sure they would increase their voter base by 25%.
