I'm not entirely against the government offering people a 'retirement stipend', which was the original intent of the program. Of course, we know what the alterior motive was, and it was brilliant, for leading citizens to become dependent on this program and thereby dependent on government officials was. But my problem with it today is that its mandatory to participate. NOTHING like this should EVER be mandatory, ESPECIALLY since everyone is being told they'll receive nothing for it come 2020. Its a damn shame.
Whats the common mindset? Lets get angry over a 1% deduction in the tax rates of business owners, yet lets not even consider that we ourselves are being taxed at 13% for no particular reason at all. Amazing.
