The average person pays about $325,000 into social security and medicare taxes over 40 years of employment. Let's just refund your contributions and let you fend for yourself after retirement...how does that sound?
PLUS the 40 years of investment returns that $325,000 would have generated when prudently invested by private inividuals instead of being confiscated and squandered by the federal government on annual consumption, and you're taking a fair deal and a lot of sense.

Making the vast majority of Americans responsible and free to save and provide for their own retirement years without "help" they don't need from a fiscally irresponsible federal government that can't even manage itself responsibly is EXACTLY what the doctor ordered.

Give all present SSI participants the option to either continue taking their chances with the existing sham government-run Ponzi-scheme system, OR opt out from the system by receiving a one-time lump-sum payout in the form of US Treasury Bonds, an amount equal to the discounted (at the US T-Bill rate) NPV of the actuarial estimate of future SSI benefits they are due. Once out of the system, they are exempted from paying any SSI Payroll Taxes going forward - and they are responsible for saving/investing for their own retirement years.

Provide a similar "opt-in or out" choice for Medicare coverage. Works beautifully with Nanny-State ObamaScare - we don't need both programs.

State-run welfare programs then take care of the truly indigent in all age classes.

Problem solved. You're a genius.

There is no money to refund. Politicians will never yield the power that holding taxpayers dollars gives them. Office gives them a license to steal. And there is never enough money for them, it is about controling our lives, poorly.

<quoted text>No you don't. who cares.
Nobody cares, how can you vote for ppl who condemn the disabled like yourself... You agree with conservative thinkers yet if they had their way your disability checks would stop.

Call it the GOP version of 'tough love'. Remember, the Obama admin., is ensuring veterans funding continues nationwide, while the bush admin., reduced such funding for 8 straight years.

Should your new conservative friends contact the SS department and request they deny you further benefits?

Should they say, he can operate a PC therefore he can find employment using his PC while at home...

These are the people you troll just to be next to. They love their guns and complaining about America. I hope you don't use food stamps friend... Try explaining that one.

ALBANY Just 12 hours after the state Senate passed the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, the state Assembly on Tuesday morning began its debate on what Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the nation's most comprehensive package of gun control legislation.

Gov Coumo is bucking to be your next President. He doesn't care about New York. If you think he brought on this gun legislation so quickly to protect you and I, you are dreaming. All he wanted was to be in the public eye for his own personal campaining purposes and to draw attention to himself. All the legislation and laws they can bring on will never ever take guns out of the hands of the American People. There are so many guns out there they will never go away. Sorry, I still can't get the sight of him prancing in the Gay Parade...yet another one of his political feats to draw attention to himself. That is all this is about.
