Why do people who have not paid their fair share into social security think that they should get something? Most of us are forced to pay into the system. This person could have saved and invested her share of the social security payement in any way that she saw fit. I have payed for 40 years and my benefit will be slightly more than half of my husbands. Before they fix benefits for people that did not even contribute, they should make the system fairer for people who have contributed.
