GUEST,guest from NW BS: 'Reforming' Social Security? (81* d) RE: BS: 'Reforming' Social Security? 07 Jan 05


fix social security? easy!

1) don't allow the federal gov't to take money out of the SS fund for ANY purpose other than SS related expense. the repubs have majorities in both houses and could pass this tomorrow. waddaya think?

2) make EVERYBODY pay. the payment into the system is limited to folks making less that 80,000 a year. why don't people over 80000 pay in? they're allowed to collect.
the repubs have majorities in both houses and could pass this tomorrow. waddaya think?

two extremely simple steps that don't cost two TRILLION dollars (bush admin's own estimate of what their "reform" will cost) to implement. the only people that won't like it are the gov't folks who like ripping off the SS funds (currently the repub majority). can you point any downside, dougR, to my plan which would allow social security to be funded forever with no problems?
