Comment: I just retired

I just retired

I start collecting SS next month. I also have some savings, but not enough to live on forever. I'm married and still healthy enough to work, so I plan to start working part time maybe later this year or next year, but I could not do this without SS.

On a side note, I'm sitting here reading the comics, and the Doonesbury comic strip points out that cutting SS by 10% will save $60 billion by 2040, but cutting out the war in Afghanistan will save $150 billion in two years.
