    •  SSI - Social Security INSURANCE (1+ / 0-)

      INSURANCE against the banks that pay no interest on a lifetime of savings.  INSURANCE against corporations that raided and annihilated pensions.  INSURANCE against Wall Street that has out and out stolen 401(k) and IRA assets, and homes and equity.
