Mr. Smith, a wealthy retired businessman worth millions, has no business receiving social security funds.
Well then he should not pay into it.
Why don't you want people to receive back the money they pay into something?
Social Security was supposed to be a guarantee against financial hardships, when the stock market was unstable. Now, SS is a guarantee that you will never see that money you put in, if you are 45 or younger.
The problem isn't "rich people" receiving SS. The problem is government laundering money through SS. Scrap it all together.
Completely phase out SS. I will be willing to sacrifice all i've paid into the program, if i could stop paying in tomorrow.
