Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) may rail against Social Security insolvency in the public eye, but that hasn't stopped him from accepting the government checks.

The libertarian-leaning Republican and former presidential candidate admitted Wednesday that he accepts Social Security checks just minutes after he called for younger generations to wean themselves off the program, in an interview on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe.'

'I want young people to opt out of Social Security, but my goal isn't to cut,' he said.

The Huffington Post's Sam Stein then asked Paul, 'A bit of a personal question -- Are you on Social Security? Do you get social security checks?'

Paul admitted he does, stating, '[It's] just as I use the post office, I use government highways, I use the banks, I use the federal reserve system. But that doesn't mean that you can't work to remove this in the same way on Social Security.'
