    fuck happened to all that money that those people paid in through payroll taxes during their decades of working?  What, that money just disappears?  What about all that payroll tax money-- doesn't that make those workers "makers""?  So when those workers need benefits from the government, they aren't "taking" what isn't theirs, or what is disproportionate to what they might be putting into the system in that particular year.  They paid every fucking previous year into the system, precisely so that those benefits could be there if they needed it.
