I want to be half and half on this one. Since we pay into SS and it's the ppl savings then why isn't the money there? Because it's been Harlem shuffled around until it evaporated! I have worked from the time I was 17 beat concrete most of my life until I blew out both subtalar joints a few years ago. 20 million and 31 million anchor babies and dreamers, enforce the McCarran-Warren Act law. Cut off all their welfare and entitlement and watch them self deport. These ppl come from 3rd world countries they refuse to practice any kind of birth control take 100 thousand turning into a million,numbers keep multiplying until our country collapses under the weight. I urge congress to read the 1952 McCarran-Walter Act. For McCarran very words describe our situation when he said I believe this nation is the last hope for Western civilization and if this oasis should be overrun, perverted,contaminated,or destroyed. Then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished. Combine with INS 2744 law we would see a mass exodus. 8 to 10 million jobs would open up. We have 47.7 million Americans on food stamps. Now let's look at Mexico, 50 billion a year drug cartels make off us buying their poison, 120 billion dollars a year in cash transfers from USA to Mexico. These illegals even load up the produce with food stamp and send it South of the border. Plug it up, look at all the money that would stay. And you on the hill can put our money back and say SORRY. So don't ever associate SS to any if ands or buts. I'm the One that has worked all my life. I'M THE AMERICAN! Thanks Loraki for clarity!
