“You contend that they deserve no assistance from Social Security, regardless of their financial contributions? What they do with the money they are entitled to is their business, in my opinion, and would be too difficult to restrict with legislation anyway. It's unfair to say, as you appear to be doing, that an addiction makes social contracts like SS void outright, when you've been paying into it for years. And it would also be impossible or at least grossly inefficient to structure a program like SS with oversight such that you could deny assistance to people who are perceived to drink too much. Not every "drunk" is readily identifiable, and besides, the vast majority of people who draw SS are not drunks.”

“I don't actually think it can be that simple. Social Security is meant to work the same for everyone, meaning that if you contribute over your lifetime of work, you receive the benefit in later years. I don't believe even becoming a homeless drunk (to your point) should make you ineligible for a program you faithfully contributed to over your lifetime of work history. Nor would it be fair to categorically deny benefits to "certain people". No one is saying things are perfect, but it is far better than not having the program, and even if some do take advantage of both it, and the rest of us who are currently paying in, the vast majority are people that are unquestionably entitled to it, and may need it to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Besides, you are using the worst-case scenario or consequence of use and using that to disqualify the entire program which i think you'll agree is a little unfair since the majority of program users are not taking advantage.”
