This is old news btw.

This is where Paul Ryan's and others who think logically and can be responsible for their own future think differently than yourself.

Paul Ryan received social security from which his father was force to pay into, yes and rightfully so...Paul also only received SS for two years, until he was an adult.

Lets pretend Paul's father did not have to pay into SS and instead paid that money into something simple like a mutual fund. Upon his fathers passing, Paul would not be limited to only 2 years of payments, he would be entitled to the entire nest egg. He very well could have received more money and even had a tangible number that could be withdrawn at once.

In a nutshell, Paul looked at SS and said we can do better. I agree with him.
