I didn't say welfare. I said welfare state. Is that not a commonly understood term and concept?
Words have meanings. Your choice of words IMPLIES SS recipients are welfare cases in a welfare state.
FYI... social security insurance is the correct term and is prepaid.
For my 2 cents Texas bar-b-cue is about the best around.
