L2J informs,

I can't confirm all to be true but I do know that your (and my) elected officials in Washington do not pay into nor collect ss.

I'm afraid that's not true. Congress has been paying into Social Security since 1984.

"Federal civilian employees, including members of Congress, were covered by Social Security by P.L. [Public Law] 98-21 in 1984. "
