    He just wants to cut benefits to anyone who ever paid into the system so there will be plenty for all the illegals and those who haven't paid $.01. It's called buying votes the socialist way.

    Im graduating from WKU in may with a degree in finance and one of the classes I had to take was retirement planning (didnt know it was a whole course on ss.) IMO if obama trys to cut ss it wont pass through congress and if it does he wont have a second term. BUT from all the numbers we examed in class the ss system has been running a surplus for years and they have been stock piling that money. BUT according to all the experts in the year 2013 the # of people retired will exceed the # of people paying into ss. So the ss system will have enough money to cover their losses till 2040 then after that the excess will be gone. At that point they will be collecting .75 cents for every dollar collected. So if you plan on being retired in the years before 2020...you will be alright...thats just my own opinion.

    Whew...........just made it. Signed up last week after paying SS for 45 years. He said first check would be in May. I would appreciate yawl keep paying so I can get some back.
  9. I don't think I should have to pay a pennie towards SS...hell there may not be any left by the time I get old enough to draw so my money just goes to someone else. I plan on taking care of my retirement on my own, I don't depend on someone else to plan it for me

    I'd like to see a politician run on a promise of cutting the dead wood from the social security draw...you know, the guys that are so disabled they can't work, but yet they can ride the ATV, water ski, ride Harleys all summer, and run a climber 30 feet up an oak tree. I know some that draw 30-40,000 annually from social security and company insurance, and are more physically fit and active than I am. These guys are breaking our system just like all the illegal immigrants everybody complains about.

    That politician would get my vote.
