To receive a centrally planned retirement check that you have paid into all your life. It is completely different to think that it would be rational or consistent with principles of liberty to receive a government hand out. Most people on food stamps pay no taxes.

There is no limit to what you receive from these programs, nor do you have to do anything before you receive from them.
