You support allowing people to invest some or all of the SS payments into private account?
As long as it is by choice and not by mandate. It is their money, they should be allowed to do whatever they want with it. Including, but not limited to, leaving it where it is.
This will be come a topic after the SOTU rebuking.
NO. We pretty much already did that will 401K's and Keogh, etc.
the market will just harvest the portion "invested" as it does now with other "investments".
The the gummit would just bail out the SS investments.
So the only difference would be that the market made money off of it and taxpayers paid for it outside of the SS "contributions".
Privatize and Opt Out if you want.
SSI is the ultimate safety net, designed to make sure that if you screw up..you still can salvage your life in your "Golden" years.
It should never ever be messed with.
As bad as it may be, it's still better than being left with nothing.
IF this is the line of thinking, why not simply have everyone give 100% of their paychecks to the government....you know, just in case we screw up.
Push it to the absurd?
Isn't there a debating term for that?
Yes...It's illustrating the absurd by being equally absurd.
Separate names with a comma.
