People need to stop focusing on the Social Security retirement program and refocus on SSI. That is the program that needs closer scrutiny. After all, SSI isn't self-funded. It is paid for by U.S. Treasury general funds. And it is running amok.
Since 1990, the number of disabled-worker beneficiaries has increased 84%. Repeat 84%!!! And, asa a result, the number of disabled Medicare beneficiaries has increased nearly 70 percent since 1990. This just isn't acceptable. We need to reevaluate how we pay SSI to premature children and take a look at why disability retirements are being handed out like candy.
That's where the red ink is....not in the self-funded Social Security program.
The Social Security Trust Fund is an easy fix....raise the retirement age by one year. Not so much with SSI. It's a monster that is out of control.
Those of us who have worked above the tables, in the lower economic realms since our middle teens-say..DON'T touch the retirement age, 40 PLUS years of paying IN taxes, to have a society that NOW allows for hordes of able entitlementalcase SLACKERTICS to drain them for sitting on their deadbeat, palms outstretched azzez is already TOO MUCH.
The "welfare" FWEE riding baby mama and similar programs are the ones that are OUT of control!!
(15 kids hollering "someone has to pay"??? The "givverment" SHOULD'VE CAPPED that kind of crap along time ago! ONE alotted amount per month, no matter how many them add to they litters of nothing but CONsumer. GET A JOB entitleMentalcase NUTJOBS-and PAY for your OWN litters, or get your dog style breeding selves FIXED!!!!)
