Americans gambling on Social Security with current system

Social Security is a hot topic today, from national to local elections it seems this government program has gotten a lot of attention.

Everyone has heard about Social Security, most students might think it’s something that old people use when they don’t work anymore, and they are right.

Social Security works like this: When you get a paycheck you pay a certain amount to the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA), a fancy way of saying insurance tax, and this tax money goes into a humongous piggy bank.
