Social Security confiscates people’s hard-earned money

TOWNSHEND — Has anyone contacted Senator Bernie Sanders about the Social Security Trust Fund status? I have. He repeatedly states that the “fund” will remain totally solvent well into the late 2000s and says it has many trillions of dollars backing it up. A politician's view.

I asked about the money confiscated for years from working people who die before getting any return, money that is lost to their families. Galveston, Texas teachers have a nice, private program with great returns. It's earning interest.

For some sick reason, politicians want money to spend and dole out at their will. There are so many people who never put a dime in, yet they get better benefits than those who did.

The system is very sick - a typical “the-government-knows-best-for-you” situation.
