Blame it on Ida Mae

In Saturday's House debate, some Democrats mentioned the opposition to Social Security and Medicare when they were being debated. Fair enough.
I checked out Wikipedia and found a small item on Ida Mae Fuller, the first person to receive a monthly Social Security check.
She paid $24.75 in social security taxes.
She received $22,888.92 in benefits before she died at age 100.
She was not deficit-neutral.
