Comment: I would much rather

(See in situ)

I would much rather

opt out of SS and Medicare, save the 15% myself, and invest it the way I see fit. I did the math when I received my first paycheck years ago and realized I am getting ripped off. If they are able to rip us off now, they will find a way to rip us off in the future.

Only solution is not to give them the means to rip us off. Opt out of the program and take responsibility for ourselves.

I feel for those who have paid into it their whole working lives who are up there in age. Why didn't they question those who held the keys to positions of power? Why did they keep voting for these crooks? In the end, it really is the majority of voters who needs pol's to hold their hand through life.
