Whether it is deducted, or they just don't give it to you

in the first place, the end result is the same.

IMO they deduct it to show that there is a purpose for that money.

Otherwise they could simply give you 'free' Medicare, and just make your SS check smaller.

The same applies to working folks. They could tax the worker directly and then the worker gets angry about paying more. Instead they create a "payroll" tax so that the money comes to them without going through you. In reality you get less money, but since you don't see it, it doesn't result in as many hurt feelings.
