Default Even more good news!

Here is the quote I read:

"President Barack Obama has said he would like tackle Social Security next year, after Congress finishes work on health care, climate change and new financial regulations. "

Just wonderful! I can't wait to see how it turns out after the first 3 fiascos.

It will either be a reform based on western principles of self-reliance and personal freedom or it will be a reform based on totalitarian collectivist principles. Any bets which model the Dems will use?

I don't think I need to answer that.

I love having to pay out to Social Security never to see my money again. I'd much rather save or invest the cash myself than have the gubmint deal with it.

Bush suggested letting each individual keep some of the ss payroll tax and invest it and the dems told the oldsters he was out to take their social security. Guess what goes around comes around.
