Social Security Reform

I have a good idea: why don’t we let the people [individually] decide whether they want to contribute to Social Security for their respective retirements? If so, then the government can invest the money for them. If not, they can invest it themselves and everybody gets private accounts so the balances are kept in order and there is accountability.

Liberals won’t go for that idea because SS is not really about retirement, but a grab bag of money for politicians, a bribe for the constituents and a ponzi scheme of redistribution for the lazy numbskulls.

Conservatives will go for it all the way, of course, because we really don’t need the people’s money. We just want limited government.
