Eye-opening article on where the tax dollar goes on average.
Each working man or woman is on average forced to pay $3,690 to Social Security and Disability payments. This money is lost to them. There is no bank account or trust fund that holds this money or invests it for anyone’s retirement. The current retirees get all the money and always have. It goes out as fast as it comes in.
And why should these retirees get this money? By what right? They should have provided for their own retirement, not forced it out of each other and their sons and daughters collectively. Moral obligations to parents, the needy, the unfortunate, and the elderly should be met with compassion by each of us. They should not be enforced by the state’s sword.
I have always been a fan of doing away with social security as it is complete nonsense to anyone under the age of 40.
