3. A significant portion of those women don't like the taste of dog food.

Let me explain.

Women are more likely than men to reach retirement age with significantly LESS work credit for Social Security.

Spend time raising kids? Less work credits.

Spend time caring for aging parents? Less work credits.

Spend time going back to school? Less work credits.

Self employed, lower income? Less work credits

Crap jobs all your life? Less work credits.

110% possible for a woman to hit 67 years old and receive a social security benefit of...

900/mo

That's not even dog food.

Biden actually campaigned on raising the base SS payment structure in 2019 but I haven't heard anything since.

If an American reaches 62 years old with sufficient quarters of employment... the BASE SS payment should be 1500$ as of today and COL set at inflation PLUS 1% annually.
