The sun does not rise 'first' in the UK, as you assert.

Wipe your chins, Skanque.

Hard to imagine that someone could be so narcissist to believe 7 billion people she has never met agree with her.

Well.. not so hard in your case, Skanque.

Origins of entitlement: FDR rejected Social Security's 'pay-as-you-go' retirement 'dole'

Published: Tuesday, April 10, 2012, 3:00 AM

By Robert J. Samuelson

Would President Franklin Roosevelt approve of Social Security? The question seems absurd. After all, Social Security is considered the New Deal's signature achievement. It distributes nearly $800 billion a year to 56 million retirees, survivors and disabled beneficiaries. On average, retired workers and spouses receive $1,839 a month: money vital to the well-being of millions. Roosevelt would surely be proud of this, and yet he might also have reservations. Social Security has evolved into something he never intended and actively opposed.

It has become what was then called "the dole" and is now known as "welfare." This forgotten history clarifies why America's budget problems are so intractable.
