      But I've paid into SS longer than you; and I still think it's a human right in the US. A human right isn't welfare. It's what we're all due. And I'm going to see to it that my children and grandchildren are going to get their full due, and not be subject to some austerity mongers who insist that the program must be solvent, when the Federal Government has no solvency constraint. NONE. Federal money is money we can make. And we need to start making it and implementing programs to reduce inequality and fulfill economic rights. See this.
