factoid: social security payback

FACTOID: Today’s average American working man will have paid $345 thousand into Social Security and Medicare by age 65. By the time he has passed he will have gotten back $417 thousand. Since women live even longer they will get an even greater payback.  So, if you’re on Social Security or Medicare don’t think you’re not participating in socialized retirement and/or socialized medicine. Unless you die early you’re living at the government trough.
