But I won't be surpised if those funds vanish and Social Security is continued to be peddled as a "failed program" in need of being cut.bigfoot wrote:So the lion's share of COVID deaths has occurred in the elderly (65+). LIkely in the 150,000+ range of excess deaths. Now the average social security payment per month is $1500 or $18K per year. That is $2.7 trillion dollars (per year) off of the social security rolls. Over 5 years we are certainly looking at $10 trillion. Now I'm just waiting for Trump to say he's solved the social security deficit problem.
I just hope I get a refund of all the social security withholdings I've paid over the years if they deem it a "failed" program.
