Interesting words from mr. Barack Obama


Remarks by the President at a Campaign Event in Roanoke, Virginia

...look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.  You didn’t get there on your own.  I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart.  There are a lot of smart people out there.  It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.  Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.
If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.

(Mr. Barack Obama, President of USA, July 13, 2012)
Later he switched to regular presidential Campaign. I'm not USA citizen, so, I don't want to be blaimed as propaganda-bot from any side of Presidential Race 2012. I just find extremely interesting quote, nothing more.
What's interesting?

It's interesting to note:

Is Social Security still a good bargain?

WASHINGTON (AP) — People retiring today are part of the first generation of workers who have paid more in Social Security taxes during their careers than they will receive in benefits after they retire. It's a historic shift that will only get worse for future retirees, according to an analysis by The Associated Press.

Previous generations got a much better bargain, mainly because payroll taxes were very low when Social Security was enacted in the 1930s and remained so for decades.

"For the early generations, it was an incredibly good deal," said Andrew Biggs, a former deputy Social Security commissioner who is now a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. "The government gave you free money and getting free money is popular."
