Judeye, unless you have some bad investments, most of the funds have recovered to close to where they were back before 2008.

Don't forget it was the housing industry that led the way in the collapse that took place. Federal law requiring them to give loans that at one time they wouldn't consider and crooked lenders giving the loans and then selling them to the banks. Also, don't forget GW Bush tried to get this under control but some in Congress fought him tooth-n-nail on this.

If they are over 18 let them get their own insurance. Not the parents responsibility.

But WE the taxpayers are FORCED to pay for those who choose not to get health insurance. Who do you think pays when someone goes to the ER without health insurance? Do you really think the DR and nurses, go unpaid for their services?

Great article..great information for our young people. thanks for an informative article

stangv8...put money..the maximum allowed in fact into our 401K as we had no pensions. Were going to be not rich, but comfortable in our retirement. Up until 2008 when the crooks on wall st robbed us.

Not a one of those crooks is in jail either. Yes, I do blame Obama for not arresting them. I blame Congress for passing laws that allow them to do this and get away with it.

Money talks..and the rest of us suffer.

Dcronly, the auto insurance example is irrelevant. Nobody is force to buy auto insurance as nobody is forced to drive. Quit driving = no auto insurance payment.

Don't forget that the money paid into SS is matched by your employer so pretty much that doubles what is deposited into the "system".

heystang, what you say about SS is liberal largess. they cant figure that someone , somewhere is paying taxes to support such ponzi schemes. But the great liberal and business basher FDR thought it up. So you know its just gotta be good. My WW2 era relatives collected much, much more than they ever paid in to SS. It can only get worse with the declining birth rate and good paying jobs. we can thank the LWV at least in part for that. Oil and gas make for jobs, but what the hades, when was the last time a gal invented anything as great as the guy stuff ! Go gals !All of this is a success to a liberal. Hey gals, when was the last gal philospoher that thought up anything profound ? can you guess it ? Answer, there never were any gal thinkers like the guy philosophers. go get your green energy and play pretend, like we did when we were kids.

cronig thinks that the 2 trillion or so the govt takes in via taxes actually arose from the govt ! Yes, not private enterprise. So the more the govt spends the more largess it is to cronigs delusional mind !thats why he says, steinerdzzz, church lady gaggle, clueless, over and over .that is liberal coping mechanisms when reality does not agree with their delusions. Having a consensus is another delusion. The libs think it is science. Cronig gets everything backwards, calls it science and name calls anyone who disagrees with him. thats the mind of a liberal folks, deluded from the get go. Thats why they need govt force. No normal person could think like that. They would know its mental illness. libs are the only people i know who desire to be mentally ill.

Anybody who says you receive more SS benefits than you put in and thinks that’s ok is a fool. Would you put money into an IRA or 401(k) all your working life and only expect to receive only a small amount more than you invested? If you put into Social Security all your life and if it was properly invested, your account would be worth well over a million dollars. You won’t even get back ¼ of that money. Social Security is one of the biggest Ponzi Schemes ever perpetrated upon the American People and they think it’s all good because their government is doing it and their government would never do anything to take advantage of them.

hey clowns, what you say is correct , but under obama the jobs for young people have dried up ! thats why they supported obama. thats why the unions are using backdoor techniques to unionize fast food places. the new world under obama. green energy is a dud, can never work, but that does not stop the libs. All of this is viewed as a success to a liberal. they did it in europe, where youth unemployment is 25% Look to europe to see what will happen here. Our home grown libs are just mimickers, not thinkers. thats why they needed the individual mandate in ACA.How better to wreck and economy. Give it a 1, 2 punch then with green energy and the US economy is sunk. liberal largess they call it. success to people like cronig who worships at the feet of govt. cronig cant figure where all the tech stuff arose from. he thinks it was the govt . wrong as usual for cronig.

Last I checked at 26 years old you should have a career and not living off mommy and daddy. Most jobs have health insurance policies you can get through what they call a job. You ever had one? Maybe you should teach your kids to get one as well.

Hey dizzycron are you that stupid that you can't figure out that had we been able to keep the money paid for SS & medicare we would have collected interest which would have drastically increased the money available at retirement. You seem to be stuck on only the amount paid in.

hey cronig, i forgot the jet engine, the airplane, printing , steam engine,autos, gasoline and diesel engines, turbines, telegraph etc. You name it . Private minds invented it. Oh, dont forget painkiller, the consensus as you like a consensus was that could not be done. If cronig was in charge we would be in the dark age of total govt control.any operation would be torture. The libs with their calling the tea party extremists must be on drugs like cough medicine, recently moved behind the counter. I can think of no other reason they cannot grasp historical facts.everything we got was done in an era of much less govt and cronig believes it was the govt. mental illnes here folks from cronig. Look at his responses. steinerdz, church lady gaggle, etc. hardly the mark of smarts.

hey cronig, how much of your life is supported by private enterprise ? fill up with gasoline , use electricity , radio, internet, electronics, all done by private enterpise. Are you that stupid not to know this ? how can one not know it like you dont ? over and over you say its the govt. Nope, its the other way around. It is private enterprise. If not why were anti trust laws enacted ? the private business got so large the govt felt threatened.Ever hear of Std oil? The dumb govt employees with beliefs like you got very scared of it. It was 1.5% of the US economy. the govt is not everything. cronig gets some facts, the govt is destroying life with the libs and the LWV.cronig, i get my facts from tv and books. You seem to make them up.

cronig you are nuts. i have said over and over . i am not on SS. I am not collecting any govt hand out. I have paid a small fortune in taxes for little personal gain, well maybe garbage pickup or snowplowing in the winter. You are stupid. The whole basis of ACA is the young must be forced into buying insurance to increase the pool from healthy people who will draw little if any benefits. stupid cronig, if one does nut drive, one does not need car insurance. Accidents cause a lot of injuries. You libs just like forcing people to do your bidding. 150 years ago it was called slavery. So learned cronig, you never , ever answer where does the givt get its money from ? let me help you. It is from private enterprise. The ones the libs call greedy. the rich who pay most of the taxes.My work has saved enough lives so far that I should never , ever, never pay another stitch of taxes in my life to satisfy stupid people like you.

Sorry cronut.....we worked we paid it's and investment and now we collect. If the govt hadn't raided SS it would be self sustaining. The only freebie is welfare and Medicaid. Paid nothing but get plenty.

Comment: This SS & MC "receiving more that they paid into it" is the biggest chunk of our federal budget by far, and the one which will grow out of control.

Its not the poor folks, but the seniors.

Comment: Yup, working folks pay SS & Medicare but, at retirement 1) w/SS, they receive more $$ benefit than they ever pay into it & 2) the govt spends more in Medicare $$s than paid into as well.

Look at your own paystub: how much FICA is withheld? Compare that amount to the avg SS monthly benefit of $1,200. The sizable 200% difference is free money. Same with MC: If a working person works a full career, receives MC at retirement, they paid $87K into the system, but the govt pays $254K in medical bills for that person. The 200% difference is free money.

There's no account will your name on it growing your SS $$s. Nope, that's not the SS system. Right now, in addition to the monthly SS$ check, 3.5 workers are being FICA-ed to pay the difference for SS recipient. You are paying for Steinerdzzz every month...

Last I knew, receiving more government dollars than paid into it was called welfare.

Last I knew, if you were a working person, you paid into both SS and Medicare and Medicare payments are taken out of your monthly SS check. How's that equal free Dcronut????

Steinerdzzzzz...seeing how much of you & your life -- past, present & future -- has enjoyed tremendous benefits and gains from Democratic/Liberal programs WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY FOR THEM like your SS & Medicare, your baseless idiocies bring to mind Ronald Reagan: There you go again...

Young adults face insurance risk with auto insurance and yet they pay it without subsidies. Like with any liability, why should health care insurance not be required to held to the same standard of personal responsibility?
