I'm a man. I'm 40.


I have paid hefty portions of every check Ive made into Social Security and Medicare since I was 22.

I'm not gonna get shite back when I am 65 despite having all of this money taken every two weeks over my entire life.

Should I be pissed off?

Why wouldn't you be?

Apathy is what is ruining this country.

If you aren't pissed then you are part of the problem.

What should piss you off more is that not only will you lose your money you've paid in, but you (and other taxpayers) will eventually have to repay the money that was stolen from the Social Security "Trust Fund" for general spending purposes, and stuffed with IOU's (treasury bills) backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government -- meaning us.

Social Security "Trust Fund"
There is no Social Security "Trust Fund." Money the government steals under the guise of Social Security goes into the general fund. Social Security checks are taken from the general fund. So it would be unwise to think because you are paying into SS you are someday going to get SS paychecks yourself.

Not to mention in twenty five years if you ever did get anything back it would be in inflated dollars and not the current or past value of the dollar in which you paid the taxes.

Would you be pissed if you bought a Cadillac on layaway, then, on the day you made your final payment, they brought you a Corolla and a well wishing of "have a nice day!"? I would be.

Of course, I wouldn't vote for the party who is looking to deliver me the Corolla. I'm voting for the party who is looking to deliver the product as promised.

Raise the age to 67? F U! I paid for 65.

You can choose who to buy your car from you can choose if you even want to get a new car.

They make you pay for social security, medicare, medicare and now obamacare taxes.

I thought you guys were pro choice?
