    We paid into Social Security our entire working lives.  Social Security pays all benefits out of funds received from Social Security taxes.  There are no government funds involved.

    Medicare is a different story, but it, too, is an earned benefit that is paid for both during our working lives and also through payments for Part B when we're eligivle.  And most of the fiscal problem with Medicare are caused by our inefficient, for-profit health care system and failure of legislation that would enable the federal government to negotiate drug prices.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
