Plan to fix Social Security

If you want to see Social Security fixed for good then all we need to do is remove all the people from it who do not contribute anything to it.

Start a program (tax) just to fund that account. It can be called Social Dependency.

This would bring to light just how much money is going to other programs then the security of our senior citizens. I bet you will hear all kinds of complaints about doing that if you can even get it passed.

How can two young children receive Social Security to the tune of $1,200 a month for 15 years when their mother only worked 1 year for her entire life and the father is alive and working.

We need to separate everything from the Social Security program and make it solely for the retirement of those who contributed to it.
