Cher - Cher Snubs Social Security

Millionaire pop legend Cher is eager to hand back her social security when she hits retirement age next year (12) in a bid to help Americans struggling to pay their bills.
The Believe hitmaker will be eligible for pension payments from the U.S. government when she hits 66 next May (11), and under retirement rules she has been allowed to claim reduced payments since her 62nd birthday three years ago (08).
But Cher is adamant she's too wealthy to accept the payments, and has taken to her Twitter.com page to ask how she can give the money back - and calls on other rich stars to follow suit.
She writes, "It's just my heart breaks 4 (for) the people of my country! Rich people should give their Social Security back 4 the 1's (ones) who need it. Someone said I should announce I want to give back my Social Security cause I don't need it! Great! I'm Down! But where?
"I should give it Back! Every person who doesn't need it should give it back! This country has made a poor girl rich! I think there r (are) rich people who would b(e) happy to put it back 2 (to) benefit those who really need it!"
