We have COLA for social security because old people can't work and earn more money in the private work force.

Here is a way to get past the CPI concern. Government should STOP giving out money to anyone. No money given out, then no CPI to worry about.

Every time a person gets a COLA either their rent, utility bill or medical bills increase taking all of it. If the government wants to save money they should just do away with COLAs altogether.

The only thing that was not close is that I responded to you as if you were a female and you are not. You are a welfare taking man.

Did you ever hear of personal responsibility? Taking care or family? It is NOT our responsibility to take care of those who did not take care of themselves. Everyone has a chance for equal opportunity, we are NOT responsibile for those that decided to be lazy.

One need only look back at how the elderly lived before Social Security was implemented to test your theory. As I said, most lived lives of impoverishment and deprivation. Why would we want to return to that?

Median personal income is less than $30,000 per year. Half the working age population earns less than that. How is the average person supposed to save for retirement at income levels like that? Tens of millions of Americans are classified as "working poor": meaning they work sh.tty jobs which pay wages which barely keep them out of poverty. How are these people supposed to take responsibility for themselves and save money (which they don't have) for retirement? By working good paying jobs that don't exist? If there so many great job opportunities for people, why the f.ck would tens of millions choose to work at lousy jobs with lousy pay, lousy benefits, and lousy bosses?

The richest 400 people in America have more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans COMBINED. It's impossible for people to accumulate enough money for their retirement when all the money, wealth, and income in the country is being hoarded by a tiny group of elites who not only have zero regard for the rest of the population, but have utter searing contempt for them.

Did they? I like how you make up. Stuff and the pretend it is true. LOL, Before the car people had to walk. So what. We.don't owe anyone a life out of pOverty, they need to work and save to get themselves out of poverty. Their families are responsible for them, not me. You will say anything to justify your being a leech.
