The loonies are on the march again trying to eliminate Social Security and Unemployment Benefits.
They call them "entitlements" but they are NOT "entitlements."
Even the "brains" in Washington D.C. refer to these 2 programs as "entitlements" as though people are taking money away from government and are expecting government to pay their way in life. Such idiots don't have a clue what Social Security and Unemployment Benefits are.
Unemployment is an insurance program. Social Security is an insurance program.
You pay "premiums" into the plans and then when you don't have work you can take some of the money you paid into the plans during your entire working life. It is NOT an entitlement. It is insurance that you file a claim for, just like any other insurance.
If you want to get rid of Social Security and Unemployment Insurance then also get rid of auto, home and life insurance because they all are exactly the same thing.
And just like Flood Insurance, Social Security and Unemployment Insurance are only provided by the U.S. Government.
Contact your Senators and House Representatives and explain it to them and why we always will need to maintain Social Security and Unemployment Benefits.
