Not just discrimination against single people. The non-working wife of a rich man gets more from SS, to which she never contributed, than a woman who worked for low wages for 40 years. the govt shouldn't be giving more to people who already have more...but then a lot of programs are like that, contrary to popular belief.</i/

You are correct, of course. I am in favor of individuals having their own benefit and tax status without regard to their being married, single, or head of household. The discrimination is much wider than that, and I doubt our stupid society will ever grow up or get wise enough to implement appropriate changes.

Best wishes for great results and a speedy recovery from your eye surgery.
