Katie, I get upset all over again every time you refer to SS as an entitlement program!  I know you have to be an intelligent young lady to be where you are, so I find it difficult to understand why you would say this.  I've worked and paid into this involuntary system since 1966.  I could have taken this same amount and invested it in a couple of blue chip stocks or a good mutual fund and made a whole lot more money for my 'golden years'! More than likely, I won't even live long enough to get it back, let alone the interest I could have made on my own.  How do you see that as 'entitlement'??  Welfare IS an entitlement and I don't think any of those recipients ever put in more than they get.  You should apologize to all of the retired folks on SS for insulting us.   Those who are trying to live on the meager sums doled back out to us, many of whom had put extra money aside for our later years, only to see it go down the tubes with the poor economy, have to scrimp and cut corners to survive.  Not all of us can make the kind of money you do, so you won't ever be in that position.  I wonder what your lifestyle would be on $600 - $2000 per month?  I'm lucky enough to fall into the higher category and still will have to work full-time til I'm 80, to get my house paid off!

If elected to the White House, Donald Trump would "love" to have former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin as a part of his team: "Like me, she's got people that don't exactly love us and we understand who they are and sort of forget about that."
"She's really a special person and I think people know that," the Republican presidential candidate said
