Once the leftist camel got his nose under the tent (SSI etc.) he’s been creeping inside. A base was formed for leftists to argue the false premise ‘socialism is good’. Social Security could have been designed in the private sector with workers contributing a fixed percentage to an investment fund of their choice. Studies have shown workers would be much wealthier at retirement. And tax payers would save millions over decades of funding a large federal agency to control and administer SSI.
