If they are on it they love it. If they are super rich and will never need it, they love it. If they want to steal from the pool of money to spend it on something else, they love it.
But they don't want to pay for it or give it to people who need it.

Social Security is benefits provided under the Social Security Act (1935), financed by the Social Security Tax authorized by the Federal Insurance Contributors Act (FICA) …and administered by the Social Security Administration. The term usually refers to retirement income benefits, but other benefits include Social Security Disability Income Insurance Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC); the Food Stamp program; Unemployment Insurance; Medicare; Medicaid; Public Assistance for the Aged, Blind and Disabled; Veterans' Compensation and Pensions; Housing Subsidies and Public Housing; Nutritional Programs for Children; and Student Aid.

It gives people a regular income after they retire.
No, Social Security is an insurance plan paid into by workers in order to receive payments when they no longer work due to retirement or disability. Republicans and Democrat…s are the largest political parties in the US. that support people running for office. There are other political parties in the US. such as the Independents, Labor Party, Green Party, and many other including the Socialist Party.
Politically (and simplistically) speaking, the security equation is viewed as: "Security * Rights = c ( constant)" The more rights individual has; the less security. This stat…ement is arguable and syllogistic, but it's pretty accepted. That said, I think it's a valid generalization that Democrats would sacrifice more security in order to maintain civil and constitutional rights, and more republicans would opt for some limited abrogation of rights in favor of security. This IS a very wide generalization, however.
Most Republicans voted for both the Social Security Act of 1935 and Medicare in 1964.
One way is to close tax loopholes. Another possibility a flat tax with no deductions except for catastrophic events.Reducing benefits for those already receiving SSI is NOT an… option for low-income receipients. That will only make them eligible for other Federal monies. Taking money from one pocket to put it in the other does not make more money. Bring production jobs back to the U.S.Stop giving money and services to illegal aliens. Instead, help build Mexico's economy so they can be self-sufficient.Stop Medicare fraud. Deliberate fraud and multitudes of errors are a great burden.We must keep our promises to our elderly and disabled Americans. I look forward to more possible solutions, and share them with your congresspeople and the President.

Adam Smith believed in government intervention only to give assistance to emerging industries he would not have approved of the creation of Social Security
Depends on the definition of oppose. Many Republicans protested in opposition during debates, but 81 of the 102 House Republicans and 16 of the 25 Senate Republicans voted… to support it when it was brought to a vote.
There is evidence that a majority of Republicans believe it should be privatized: most Republicans today say they believe in smaller government, and say that it is not the rol…e of government to provide or administer social welfare or entitlement programs. Republicans believe private companies should run such programs. Democrats disagree: Social Security began under the administration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and since 1935, it has been a popular and successful program; Democrats see no problem with the government continuing to be involved in it.
The idea that what we paid in FICA taxes was invested somewhere is just not true. As soon as Congress, and, or the President got it they spent it. They claimed it was really j…ust one more tax, and the full faith and credit of the USA was there to "guarantee" whatever bribe they offered the old folks for their votes. Democrats love to tax and spend. They want to shower people with benefits (or as now known "Entitlements"). Half of our population receive some form of monthly check from the Dept. of the Treasury! Republicans differ in that their mantra is lower taxes, fewer entitlements. Democrats believe in the European Socialism. Cradle to grave fulfillment of our needs. Republicans preach "Private Sector" can and does a better job. They like to point to lower taxes from JFK, Reagan, and Bush 43 as the reasons behind very robust national growth and income. Some say Democrats see the "pie" as finite, and want to take more money from the higher income folks, and give it, in the form of entitlements, to those who can't or won't care for themselves. Republicans argue they can grow the economy (or pie as it were) so less is needed in taxes from each tax payer to provide the basic needs for people. Socialism removes risks from our lives. However it is argued it also reduces economic freedom. It's interesting to note studies show females are more security conscience then men, and men tend to want to "take a shot", as in opening a business. On the one hand the security conscience want, perhaps NEED those government promises for a happier life. On the other hand men want, again perhaps NEED the opportunity to show what he can do, to build "something" for his family, and thus provide security to his family, not give it all to government, then let government decide what is fair. It's also then understandable why females lean Democrat, while men lean Republican. Finally it is up to you to see what people (you e.g.)got when Democrats were in power, compared to what YOU got for yourself with the lower taxes Republicans preach about.
They don't. They, and other fiscal responsibly people, thinks that the annual increase that retirees get should closely match the increases that American wage earner gets. Oth…er wise, the percent of wages of American workers will have to go up to pay the retirees, or the retirement fund will go broke. Like the President says, it's simple math.
How many times have the Republicans try with a Republican controlled Congress attempt to repeal Social Security since 1935?
GOP House never tried to repeal Social Security.
I will start with the facts and figures. Did you know, 54 million depend on Social Security1 out of every 6 people. About 2 out of 3 seniors depend on Social Security for most… of their income, and one-third of seniors rely on it for at least 90% of their income. Social Security's benefits are modest but vital. The average benefit is about $13,000 a year i.e, less than full-time, minimum-wage work. Social security my account is the best to know about the social security.
saving for retirement is the job of citizens, not government
