Ten Reasons to Change Social Security

Friday, 04 March 2005 12:00 AM

I know how much my employers and I put in. I figured out how long I must live to get that back, get it back with low interest, and when I start freeloading on younger workers. Change the law so I have what I paid into it – right now in a lump sum. I don't want socialism. I don't want old-age welfare. Even if I become poorer, I'll be freer, and it's better for my children.

C'mon, Congress, at least create alternatives for folks younger than me. Like:

Social Security A: Put your Social Security taxes into your personal savings account, like an IRA/401(k). Make money. Expect nothing from the government unless you go on welfare – called "welfare."

Social Security B: Put some of your taxes into a personal savings account. Expect reduced benefits from the government, but more money (personal savings + smaller Social Security = more money, no matter what).

Social Security C: Put your Social Security taxes in the gaping black hole of government and get reduced Social Security benefits.

Social Security D: Make The People pay to every citizen the retirement that Congress gets - screw the kids!

Here are 10 reasons to change Social Security, even if Congress rejects my four plans.

Get lost, AARP! You don't speak for me.
