Young Americans, Work and Social Security
This is my first post in a long time and prob only the second or third post I have ever created in this group.
My dad and I were discussing politics briefly one morning. He said that it was mentioned on the news that "not enough young Americans were working and contributing to social security while too many were not working and taking from it" in the form of disability, SSI, etc. Young men and women who most likely could work, but chose not to. Not FS, TANF or medicaid, but just social security/SSI/disability.
I guess I never really noticed one way or another. I worked to get where I'm at now. I know a few people who prob fit into the above category, but not at the level he was making it out to be.
Of course, I never actually read or heard any such thing from the news, so I honestly couldn't be sure if he had taken something out of context.
Do you believe it to be true? Not enough contributing and too many taking?
