Social Security to start cashing Uncle Sam's IOUs - Yahoo! News
Its ok because in the end we'll save money.
Still not sure how that happens but I've heard it a few time son different things. like health care, spent trillions now and save money later! First step, is to spend more! If you don't spend more, how do you expect to save money?
If anyone our age grew up expecting SS when they retire, they were highly misled. This has been coming for years.
What? Wiat?...I don't get $4500 a month when I retire at 67 now....WTFBBQMANG?!?!?
So why do we pay it? Seriously, everyone who will be retiring after 2040, or whenever it's projected to totally crap out, should just claim tax exemption. They're stealing from you.
i say we boycott that shit.
they have enough in bonds to float the people already claiming the benefits.
i feel that since our generation wont be able to claim we should be exempt from paying it.
Hell, i know of illegal immigrants that have never even paid taxes here that are filing for ss benefits. and getting more than citizens who actually paid in.
because the greatest socialist of all, FDR, fucked up our country for life.
Seriously though, is there anything we can do about it? Why should I pay SS if I'm never going to see a dime from it?
Becuase you have a grandma. Think of grandma.
Fuck her. Honestly though, my Grandparents had half a brain cell. They put money away for their retirement.
Yes, stop paying it. Every sane American should stop paying their SS taxes and put that money into a retirement account. In Euros.
people in their 60+'s now didn't have things like 401ks, roth IRAs, and other retirement savings plans. In the 40s when this came to be, it was a you put in, you get back type tax.
that changed over the years from the baby boom... There are more people in the 60-80 age range than there are 30-60 right now. Thus, the work force is less than that of the populace receiving benefits.
If you don't like it, it's really too bad. our parents and grand parents should have been smarter and voted against it staying. SS was originally designed to get through the depression. well, guess what, we've been out of it for 70 years. but, the socialists never let it go away, and our parents didn't vote it away, and now it's simply going away because it's bankrupt.
I'm pretty sure that would land me in jail, I don't really have the option of not paying it anyways. They take it right out of my check.
Not really. If you don't like it, don't pay it. Non violent dissent works.
You do realize you can check one box on your W-4 and they won't, right? Besides, it won't land you in jail, tax evasion is illegal, but not paying taxes because you legitimately believe you shouldn't is not tax evasion.
yeah, but when tax time comes around, they will get their money from you for ss.
yeah, good idea, fuck with the IRS..............
