I am so sick and tired of hearing about the need to cut entitlements and then calling Social Security part of this system. I have been paying into Social Security for over 40 years so it’s not an entitlement it’s an investment.
When people put money in the Stock Market or a savings account or a retirement fund they expect a return on that money so if Social Security is an entitlement then so are all of these. There’s no difference you but your money in there expecting a return at a later date…but wait….you put money into Social Security as well don’t you want that money returned when you retire, or are you just giving it to the government out of the goodness of your heart? “Just a Though”
