The Social Security Socialist System is just as unconstitutional as government run health care. No where in the Constitution of the United States does it give authority to the Federal Government to run a retirement program. I believe the existence of the social security system has created a nation of people dependent on big government. The people who have some financially savvy would do far better to invest their money directly. The people who are financially ignorant are fooled into the false comfort that the “government” will take care of them in their old age. Ask any retired person and they will tell you that the payouts from social security are inadequate to live on.
