167. Um, I didn't write "paid into" anywhere...kindly don't put words in my keyboard
I'm fully aware that my social security taxes paid for my parents retirement. I'm not that ignorant nor am I that stupid to believe those taxes are sitting in a lockbox somewhere, though it may serve your purpose to pretend that I am too ignorant and/or stupid to understand how the system works.

I wrote that I have paid thousands IN social security taxes (as opposed to paying thousands in, say, income taxes or thousands in, say, property taxes.)

My generation supported our parents DOUBLY, through social security taxes and then, for many, supplementing that, while putting kids through college. Thank you so much for recognizing that even as you suggest throwing us under the bus now that our time to retire is approaching.
