30. SS is welfare that is changed around to hide the fact from the public..
But it is a simple fact. People who are getting money today or taking from current workers and the Chinese. I don't think it is magic, it is because old people vote.

I say this not to state a conservative position, but to acknowledge reality. I would also state that a just society needs to take care of the elderly and provide for them. However, treating FICA as somehow ACTUALLY related to SS funding is silly.
