Social Security Joins Medicare on GOP Chopping Block
The best reason for, if not discontinuing Social Security in its current guise altogether, then at least letting younger workers choose to "opt out" of it, is that the system doesn't work worth a dang.
A vast majority of folks that are relying solely on Social Security for the retirement, are going to be living well under the poverty level.
Instead of looking to the government to be the solution to each and every one of our problems, why don't we look to ourselves, our families, and our communities first to help out when needed?
Why don't we begin preparing for our retirement by even putting aside $20 a paycheck when we first get that minimum wage job in high school?
Instead, we covet those dollars of the evil rich and expect others to take care of us when we know we should have been taking care of ourselves from the beginning. The ever-growing entitlement mentality in this country will ultimately be the final nail in the coffin of liberty.
