*Forced* savings is bad enough. But Social Security is hardly that. Forced transfer of funds (i.e. no savings involved) is more like it. I fail to understand why S.S. is termed so successful when even the lowest earners get very poor return on their "investment".

In other words, since the people who benefit the most from this transfer dont benefit very much, why are so many people such great fans of S.S.?

Because a bird in the hand gets eaten.
