Entitlement , my *****
Worked from age 16 to 65, paid a large amount of money into S.S. and had no choice about it.
Paid Income Taxes on the money I never saw in my check.
Whom ever I worked for paid an equal amont into my S.S. which was considered part of my salarly.
Most likely I would have been paid more if employer had not had to pay my S.S.
The last 25 yrs. of my working life, I paid the max in S.S. and my employer paid the same.
Now I get a S.S. check each month and some call me getting an ENTITLEMENT and a FREELOADER on the system.
