“The way we treat retirees in this nation is broken…

When the government created Social Security, it was as an anti-poverty insurance program… not a way to pay for your entire retirement. In fact, it began with only a 2% payroll tax and promised to never take more than 6% of a worker’s pay.

That promise was broken.

Today, Social Security takes a combined total of 12.4% of your pay.

And what do you get guaranteed in return?

Nothing.

According to the Social Security Administration’s own website, the Supreme Court ruled in 1960 that citizens have no legal rights to Social Security, no matter how long they paid into the system.

Social Security’s costs this year exceeded its income for the first time since 1982.”
