You read the liberal propaganda about Social Security going broke due to too many folks getting old and drawing from the system that they paid into for many years. Bunk. I went to the Social Security office in the early morning of Aug. 6. Approximately 28 people were standing in line. Only about five of them appeared to be of retirement age.

That appears to be around 18 percent of the people possibly using the system for what it was created for. Those who have not paid into the system for many years should not be drawing working folks' money.
