Bilden asked:<< in your latest missive you stated "transfer is intentionally skewed to those who earned the lowest wages while working". Please clear up that statement.>>Chips did a great job of doing so. I'll just add that in 2000 a worker who earned $20K will see about 45% of that wage replaced by SS in retirement. Someone making $76,200 will only see about 23% despite having paid far more into the system. Thus, the higher paid worker helps subsidize the benefits of lower paid workers.Regards..Pixy
