Every socialist policy is a "safety net" to you numb skulls. You fools will trade your freedom for a false sense of security every time! Keep drinking from the crack cup of liberal propaganda!
It's not propaganda. Social Security, Medicare, and to a lesser extent Unemployment Insurance help everyone. I'm judging here, but you do not seem particularly bright. You can't be earning enough money with your limitations to take care of yourself; let alone your parents or grandparents in their retirement. The Social Safety net helps you keep some dignity and not become destitute when you are older and can't work. I don't understand why you would want to tear that down.
It aint your money

Well, the law of exponents doesn't allow for these ponzi schemes to go on forever. They just can't. Math doesn't lie. It's time to cut EVERYTHING to the bone. Except the white house travel budget. Can't have the King and Queen uncomfortable now can we?

One would like to think you're correct. However, SS has been extended to millions who never paid in, are family members of those on SS too. If your on SS, and have college age kids, SS pays each kid for being in school (have a friend 65, 2 kids in college, each gets $1,100/mo while in school). He's not destitute but takes thr money. There are dozens of socialist started SS programs ripping the system. Those are the areas I have heart burn with.
hold on

I can totally agree with you on this matter. I cannot vouch for this situation that you speak of, however I have seen the following. Multiple what you would call Otis the town drunks, that ride around on bikes all day, getting SS benefits for being disabled alcoholics. Several criminals including one running a check fraud ring getting benefits for being "learning disabled". And a friends family member who gets benefits for being obese.
Its sad really because I also know of many people including my own mother who paid in for 30 plus years but never got a single penny due to her death at a younger age, and all the kids were in their 20-30s. And my father who paid in for over 40 years and got one year before he died. I guess these other people is where all their money went to. I have heard that they stopped giving at least the alcoholic disability benefit, but those that were already getting it continue to do so.
