Lori, your facts suggest that our government leaders are working under a calculated statistical average that Soc. Security may never have to be paid to a whole crap load of people. They are sneaky little representatives now aren't they.
And yet, so many people have been duped into believing that our government, and current administration, actually cares about our health!!

"The average life expectancy of a black male is roughly 68.6. The retirement age of Social Security is set under current law to eventually rise to 67. You do the math — this cannot be a good deal.
According to Social Security expert David John of the Heritage Foundation, one-fifth of white males die between the ages of 50 and 70. But one-third of black males die between those ages. If you die before you reach the age of 62, you have no chance of collecting benefits, and if you die shortly thereafter, you will not recoup the payroll taxes you paid into the system."
