Social Security is not an entitlement

Entitlement my foot, remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but our employer did, too. It totaled 15 percent of our income before taxes.

If you averaged only $30,000 over your working life, that's close to $220,500. Read this carefully, the government has not paid in one single penny into our Social Security account. We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a government bank to insure that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in.

And they call that an entitlement.

Another thing, if you die before you retire you won't get your Social Security money. Your spouse will get a burial amount that won't even pay flowers on your grave. Your Social Security money will never repay what you and your employer paid into Social Security. Where did it go? The government "borrowed" the money for other government spending and they want us to pay it back.

And now the president and Congress want to take away our cost-of-living increase instead of paying us interest on the billions of dollars that they owe us. Yes, we are entitled - to our own money
