The reason people are against Social Security is because there is no Rights to Social Security and the U.S. Social Security Administration even tells you on their Webpage with the link below that there is no rights and can be taken away or eliminated at any time and the Federal Government now wants to take the Private & the Railroad Pensions along with 401K's and dump them into Social Security Ponzi Scheme and after that, that is when the Federal Government will drop the ball and tell everyone you have no rights to Social Security and is the reason why most people do not trust these Modern Liberals and Modern Conservatives which both like certain aspects of Modern Pseudo Liberalism and some aspects they don't.<quoted text>
Strange how most folks who are against Social Security are already getting theirs.
Supreme Court Case: Flemming vs. Nestor
Social Securitys Sham Guarantee
By Michael D. Tanner
May 29, 2005
How many times during the recent debate over Social Security reform have you heard someone refer to Social Securitys guaranteed benefit? The AARP says Social Security is the guaranteed part of your retirement plan. Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader in the House, touts the systems guaranteed retirement benefit. The liberal activist group ProtectYourCheck.org , headed by former Clinton chief of staff Harold Ickes, is running ads calling Social Security a guarantee you earned.
But Social Security benefits are not guaranteed.
They are not guaranteed legally because workers have no contractual or property rights to any benefits whatsoever. In two landmark cases, Flemming v. Nestor and Helvering v. Davis, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Social Security taxes are not contributions or savings, but simply taxes, and that Social Security benefits are simply a government spending program, no different than, say, farm price supports. Congress and the president may change, reduce, or even eliminate benefits at any time.
