CDs, some off shore accounts are going to insure my retirement so I'm all set, champ...
Social security has always been a target for republicans because they don't want to have to pay hard working Americans when we get old, nothing more...Cheap ass misers is all that adds up to.
You go ahead and depend on those "smart investments" in the stock market...That's like betting on horses... LOL!!!!
My retirement money is handled by one of the best investment firms in the business. It's doing quite well actually. But you are wrong about Social Security. Currently, we are paying more out in SS payments than we are collecting. How can you say it's a target when it's been reported on by the left and the right? Medicare is another one. In fact, more and more doctors are refusing to treat new government patients because the feds pay half to two-thirds of the money they owe to providers. Nobody can stay in business that way.

Glad you are setup with your retirement, because by the time you reach age, social security won't be there to help.

That's my point. It has changed and changed for the worst.
My father (now 84 years old) was on welfare when he was a kid. They lived in a house with no electricity or plumbing. He and his five siblings slept by the fireplace all winter long. Welfare back then was a red wagon that you pulled to the gas station where they filled it up with fruits and vegetables.
...
I see. So you maintain that the "Good Old Days," to which you obviously long to return, would look like large families living with no electricity nor plumbing, sleeping by the fireplace all winter long?

That is SO 1930s! There are plenty of undeveloped countries to which you are free to emigrate -- and leave a more Modern lifestyle to those who wish it.

A wish? Is that what it is?

Tell me, who is paying for this modern lifestyle you speak of? Better yet, who are we borrowing money from to accommodate this lifestyle? One more: is this lifestyle worth bankrupting the entire country?

The truth of the matter is that lowlifes who don't want to work live better than many working Americans. They eat better, have better healthcare for themselves and their family, live in larger homes with more amenities than some working, and even have their utilities paid by the working.

Oh yes, and those government cell phones? Who do you think pays for that? For crying out loud, our so-called poor have cell phones with 250 anytime minutes to talk with their lowlife family and friends.

Our founders never intended this country to have a citizenry totally dependent on the government. Dependency is slavery.

The "welfare" component of the Federal budget is miniscule -- about 2%. Totally eliminating it would not make ANY difference in the deficit nor debt -- but it makes a GREAT DIFFERENCE for those who need it.

You use the poor/disabled as a scapegoat for what ails the country. This is HARDLY original -- this was done on a large scale with people of a certain religious background once blamed for ALL of their country's ills -- and did not turn out well. Apparently, you would like to the conditions of biblical times, with throngs of beggars lining the streets, and poor people routinely dying of starvation and untreated diseases; resulting in life spans of 25-30 years. Don't forget the highwaymen randomly robbing and killing travelers -- making both travel and shipping highly hazardous.

Yeah, the Good Old Days of small government and no taxes!

Really now? Then do tell, DumBama's proposal was to increase taxes on those making $250,000 or better. The additional income would have been less than 80 billion per year. Yet, we spend more than that on food stamps annually. So how would this tax increase make any difference in debt or deficits????

Learn something for a change. Our federal spending on "benevolence" is ruining this country:

The Roman Empire brought plenty of big government (e.g. public works), infrastructure, great security -- the Pax Romana, and even popular sports. Of course, personal liberty, religious freedom, democracy, etc. went out the window.

I learned enough from my governor. Rick "I only took the fifth 75 times" and I am the largest Medicare ripoff artist on record. By the way, I've been on Medicare for the last ten years, and no doctor ever has refused treatment.

I understand why the need to Privatize Social Security because it has to do with 2 SCOTUS case ruling in Flemming v. Nestor and Helvering v. Davis and any thing that is formulated as a tax is affected by these two SCOTUS rulings and Medicare would be affected same way as Social Security because it is based on a tax.

Social Security will be fine.
It's the cost of living at that time is what concerns me.
Things that cost 10 dollars now will be triple in my old age.

Your current providers won't. But if you need to go to a new facility and doctor, you might find trouble getting in there. The video is from PBS. They are hardly what you might consider a right-wing organization. And, if you go to Google, you will find countless stories just like the ones I posted.

Here's another one from USA Today back in 2010, again, very left leaning usually:

I can post dozens of them. If you're not experiencing any problems, then I say good for you. But that doesn't mean it's not happening or it won't happen to you in the near future. And if you are ripping off Medicare, then you are part of the demise.

Depending on how old you are now, you might not be able to collect a dime. I'm 52 years old, and they want me to work until I'm 67 before I can collect. For younger people, the average lifespan will increase so they will have to work until 70 or older. Mind you, it's the Democrats who are behind this because even they know SS is heading for a brick wall unless we do something to TRY and save it.

It's been well documented for the longest that SS will not take care of you in your golden years...
Try and invest smartly, save your pennies, and stay healthy as you can.

No one I know on Medicare has any of the so called "problems" you keep referring to. You can post all the dozens of whatever you want. And patients don't rip off Medicare or Medicaid. It's teabag ripoff artists like Rick Scott that do that. How do you think he made his millions? The Constitution gives you the right not to incriminate yourself under the fifth amendment. However, when Rick did that 75 times, would you think maybe he had a lot of shit to hide?

Lyin' Ryan and the rest of the teabaggers don't want to save it. They want to get rid of it and have you invest a vocher in a private account. Why don't you buy some Enron stock?
