In my previous post I linked to Jacob Hornberger’s post asserting that Social Security is welfare just like food stamps. Now he has some further elaborations on the welfare aspect of Social Security and the immorality of Social Security. And today he notes that if Social Security and other welfare programs are repealed along with the taxes which are taken from the people to fund the programs, then families will retain much more of their own money and earnings that the government won’t be stealing from them. Thus it will be much easier for them to support their elderly family members. That’s the way things used to be. It sure is a more honest approach, and the way a free society would do things.
