Entitlements that really are welfare are one thing (meaning programs that other taxpayers pay for including Medicare since that is one program that actually costs taxpayers more then people pay for or programs that are complete welfare i.e., food stamps, subsidized heating & housing & childcare ) but to try to steal Social Security from people who actually paid for it themselves is THEFT period.

Who Pays for Social Security?

Workers and employers pay for Social Security. Workers pay 6.2 percent of their earnings up to $110,100 a year in 2012. (The cap on taxable earnings usually rises each year with average wages.) Employers pay a matching amount for a combined contribution of 12.4 percent of earnings. Self-employed persons pay both the employee and employer share for a total 12.4 percent. (Half of this contribution, the employer share, is a deductible business expense for income tax purposes.) Also, higher-income Social Security beneficiaries pay federal income taxes on their benefit income, and these taxes help pay for Social Security.

I read somewhere recently that Americans have about 3.5 trill in 401k and other retirement investments. That must be after the fall. I was certainly astonished that there was that little amount that was saved in this fashion in the US. Would not even put a dent iin the debt we owe.
