29. That is called welfare and "social security" would be dead in a decade.
Edited on Thu Jul-01-10 08:54 AM by Statistical
Despite decades of Republicans dismantling every program that helps poor or middle class SS has remained strong. The benefits have never been reduced and the retirement age only increased once by up to 2 years (somewhat reasonable since life expectancy has increased almost 12 years in same time period).

You think it is magic that SS has survive where countless other programs have died, been underfunded, or stripped?
