    What do you think about Mitt Romneys SSI choice plan for the younger generation? He gives people choices to either save up or stay on the normal SSI. This country is about personal freedom and advancement.

    It sounds pretty good. :eusa_drool:

    Someone making a lot of money can choose the choice plan and save up far more. These people won't be drawing from the normal system. :eusa_shhh:

    I think people should have the choice of a free market retirement...The good news is this is the best way to preserve the normal system for people that can't.

    This is good for the people that can and the people that can't.

    We save tens of billions of dollars per year going this way off the deficit.

    -Giving people choices
    -Fixing SSI
    -Cutting the deficit

    This is the one thing that Romney offers that's good.

    I think it is better then getting NOTHING at all. Because the way it is going the well is running dry.. There are so many baby boomers and so many people who are not having larger families there is NO way it will work the way it does now..

    We must become a society that offers choices from retirement to schooling. Someone should have the ability to retire the way they wish....As someone must have the right to choose where they send their child in education.

    Democrats are all about centralizing and big government controlling your life.

    Save? WTF do you think is able to save? Majority of Americans live from pay check to pay check. The new middle class is now the poor and we may never recover to the point were Romney thinks we can. Good paying job? My daughter has three and still cannot save. Social Security is a insurance policy that pays off. I raised three kids and was not able to save anything. Save for medical and retirement is not a reality but a fantasy. No if you are talking about investments. Think about how many people lost on their 402k which has almost no returns. If not for Social Securtiy most americans would be up the creek with out. If enough people opt out of Social Security it will go broke. Don't affect Romney so WTF? How about people who have not paid enough into Social Security and have to collect SSI like most illegal aliens if they are legalized,etc.
    Romney's plan for this country is equal to terroism.
    Vouchers for Medicare is insanity.

    Explain more on "save up"

    What grade are you in, Matthew?:confused:

    12.5% of your income goes into social security and most collect more than they put in. To have a $1500 monthly Social Security check would mean you would have to save how much out of your income? There are no secure investments and never will be. How many people have lost their retirement savings as is?
    Social Security is secure and Government will make sure it remains secure.
