Social Security

 
President Johnson started the war on poverty, welfare and food stamps and HUD. All the money came from the social security coffers. There were trillions of dollars in the social security program so much so that there was consideration of lowering the retirement age for everyone. That would have been great. Once again the law abiding ,hard working U.S. citizen gets taken for a ride in the one social program that could have benefitted all Americans. This is why social programs are a waste of time and money in a free and open capitalist society, I would have rather not contributed at all, than put in and get nothing in return. Just look at young Americans, I bet they would like the opt out choice, because there won't be anything there for them at all. Social Security is really just another tax for  Americans now.
