5. I know an extremely rich guy who collects social security and Medicare

He owns several homes all over the us and a winery in a south American country. Staunch republican, big rmoney supporter, hates o'bummer as says why should I pay taxes for some deadbeat's healthcare. He has no business getting social security or Medicare. He has more money then he'll ever need in life. It's totally disgusting to me how he mocks poor people and minorities.
So I have no problem with means testing. He joked he used his one month social security check to buy an expensive wine. I told him that some people live on those checks he said they are losers and deadbeats because he worked hard and they should have also. Of course being a white male in New York in the 70's and getting into wall street before the boom of MBA types he was lucky.
