Social Security?

I have been listening a bit to Walter Williams talk about how bad a deal Social Security is for the American people. He is of the opinion that it should be phased out and offers some very compelling arguments as to why. I agree with his logic but here is the problem. I want my money!! Don't you?

Yeah, but I'm not sure anyone needs to spend $18 on a book to deal with them. The people at the local Social Security office are very pleasant and know what the hell they are talking about, and they will help you "get the most out of your benefits" for free. I speak from experience.

Never have been the SSA except once to get a replacement card. Not quite retirment age yet but it seems to be approaching fast. Did not have a problem on the phone when a relative passed away. Much easier than dealing with lost packages at the post office. Mainly I just get irritated when people talk about doing away with SS after we have paid into the system for years. Yes it is not the best system but it certainly beats nothing.
