Goofyhoofy,You linked to something called "Legislative History of the Social Security Act of 1935" which at the very top of the page states: "This is an archival or historical document and may not reflect current policies or procedures"Every year we all get an annual statement from the Social Security Administration. It contains an estimate of what your benefits might be in the future depending on various circumstances, but also makes it very clear that the amount of benefits you might receive in the future can change based on changes in legislation. What you posted is not a "promise" to pay anything to anyone. It is part of the legislative history of the SSA of 1935 taken entirely out of context.
