I'm disagreeing that it is a transfer from the poor to the rich because it gets taxed back from the rich.

While wealthier people could end up paying some tax back, I think that percentage is very low in the scheme of things. Here is some of what I am referring to. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/making-sens ... -security/

I don't believe that's true. SS was implemented during the Great Depression. People had no "retirement". They had nothing. There was no "supplementing".

And sometimes you know nothing about what you talk about and you should just STFU but you try to baffle people with BS.

SS was designed to give retired workers 65 and older a continuing income. It was not meant to be a retirement plan for most it was and still is not enough to live on.
