Presidential hopeful John McCain agrees with many expert’s opinions that the Social Security program is in trouble. In fact, he called it “a disgrace,” but that doesn’t stop him from cashing the checks the SSA sends him. In 2007, he received $1,930 a month in benefits and has received benefits for the last six years.
The fact that McCain’s wife earned $6 million and has a net worth of about $100 million is a sign that something is very wrong. The SSA is supposed to limit benefits if you earn above a certain amount but I suppose the McCains have some accounting guru working that all out for them.
