The problem I see with changing SS is caused by people only looking at it from a "retirement" aspect.

But SS is FAR more than just that.



It pays survivor, disability, and retirement benefits. If you consider all of the jobs that it is expected to shoulder, and the fact that if you become disabled and never pay into it again, you still receive a lifetime of checks until you die, it's not all that bad a deal. If you were to have to pay for that kind of comprehensive coverage, you'd spend considerably more than you'd probably pay for in SS tax.



I used to be in favor of privatizing it as well, but then I thought about all the things that SS does. It should be left alone.

If billionaires paid SS on their entire income then they should get a SS check proportionate to their contributions don't you think? If a citizen contributing from a $40k income receives $1,000 a month then a person contributing from billions in earnings should expect a SS check in the millions, or not? If the answer is not then you should support the general fund tax paying for SS entitlements.


Oh yeah a course Zack, but most probably would not take it because they you know,,,, don't need it lol. But yes I agree.

That is weird but thank you too : ) Maybe me and you can agree on more issue dealing with this issue of S.S. in the future. Like lowing the S.S. age from 65 67 down to 55 or 57. I can explain but I hope you don't think that's too much of a stretch.
