I have came to the conclusion that I want all the Social Security money back!! I am sorry but I have no faith in my government to manage my money..I think American should have a choice if they rather invest it or let government manage my money! I am amused that they call it a Social Security Trust Fund..Well, there is no security or do I trust the dumbasses in DC to manage the money!! I want my money back before they squander it on another war or loot it some other way! I want my damn Social Security money back! How about you??

    Well, your money is gone, poof, no real account, no lock box, no savings account - just a pile of IOU"S in a dusty cobwebbed box. We would all have done better with a pass book savings account at 1% interest and that is lousy. Of course, the democrats tell us that we cannot have any of that money (that they are guarding for us - HA) because we are simply too stupid to invest any part of it for ourselves.

    Sorry Rock, you gots no money in there

    Well, I see that America is over, but SH every day is filled with trivial minor issues when the focus need to be on ending the marxism, which can only be done by dissolving this government. The ReStart will be hell, but very interesting.

    Most TV "news" networks should be turned off; Fox not so much; at least they run Stossel and Napolitano for some balance.

    I don't watch any of them much at all. I guess I prefer expanding my own mind over absorbing what all the marxists keep bringing upon us.

    Many people believe that Social Security is an “earned right.” That is, they think that because they have paid Social Security taxes, they are entitled to receive Social Security benefits. The government encourages that belief by referring to Social Security taxes as “contributions,” as in the Federal Insurance Contribution Act. However, in the 1960 case of Fleming v. Nestor, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that workers have no legally binding contractual rights to their Social Security benefits, and that those benefits can be cut or even eliminated at any time.

    The Court’s decision was not surprising. In an earlier case, Helvering v. Davis (1937), the Court had ruled that Social Security was not a contributory insurance program, saying, “The proceeds of both the employee and employer taxes are to be paid into the Treasury like any other internal revenue generally, and are not earmarked in any way.”

    In other words, Social Security is not an insurance program at all. It is simply a payroll tax on one side and a welfare program on the other. Your Social Security benefits are always subject to the whim of 535 politicians in Washington. Congress has cut Social Security benefits in the past and is likely to do so in the future.

In fact, given Social Security’s financial crisis, benefit cuts are almost inevitable. Several proposals to cut benefits, from increasing the retirement age to means testing, are already being debated

    Fact is, SS turns out to be merely another way of forced taxation a.k.a. theft. Never trust a government to play banker. When FedGov goes bust, there will be no more checks for SS or anything else, and FedGov will become extinct. It's only a matter of *when*.

    I don't think I care if they give any back, but it would be awesome if they'd quit taking it out and just admit that people under the age of 55 aren't going to have the benefit of Social Security.

    Yeah well it should have worked out that way but the money was mismanaged and taken out for other purposes other then what it was entrusted for . Someone had to pay for those bombs because the rich are all on welfare and cant afford to protect their own best of interest so they got the old folks to foot the bill .

    The money was in a trust fund not to be touched for any reason . All they did was shuffel the money around to make it look that it wasnt spent on war that we paid for one way or another . The money is gone just billions in what basicly is no more then IOUs .

    I'm retired. I know a lot of retired people. Why is it that the retired people who make statements like the one quoted above also tell stories about how they lost their fortunes in the stock market?
