Any time I argue for killing SSI, it is never because I want people to lose what they paid in. The government cant touch anything involving money without screwing it up royally. I want us all to get the money we have paid in to date back so we can roll it into a non-government managed retirement account. Pick a birth year 3 years from now that will cease paying in and call it good. We will get better returns, American business will get a hell of a lot more funding and the government can kick rocks for trying to hold us hostage in a broken system.Every "kid" dumb enough to call it an "entitlement" in front of me gets an earful. Like you, I had that **** taken from my paychecks my entire working life (and they are STILL taking it). I am old enough to draw now, and I want MY money back.
