So it's OK to receive SS benefits if you have kids paying into the system, but not if you don't? I don't get it.

i don't either ....

i paid in for 40-something years .... significantly more than my parents took out.

my sister has been ( & continues ) to pay ... more than my parents took, maybe as much as i will.

... during which time, i also paid taxes to educate Other People's Kids.

... And rarely complained (never complained about education; complained some about the various wars i thought wrong; complained one time about SS tax)

so .....no guilt.

in fact (or, as a mentor used to say, Sad-but-true-FACT), a vocal minority(?) of 'younger' generation comes across as such tiny pissants, whinging about every bloody dime of taxes ... i have pretty much zero motivation for political compromise ...

..... as the Chinese allegedly say, "Interesting Times."
