Social Security 'Birthday' - Time to Retire It!?
- When Congress reconvenes next month, Social Security is
likely to be the hottest topic. The RLC Board will consider a
News Release on the issue at its September 12th meeting.
With the 70th Anniversary coming on August 14th (one
day after Castro's 79th birthday ;o), suggestions on what
theme to stress are welcome.
Of course, our members would prefer to have the entire
Ponzi scheme retired. We'll certainly make note of that,
as well as the RLC Statement reference:
"We support a responsible transition to private financial alternatives,
rather than maintenance or expansion of compulsory government retirement,
disability, and health programs.
However, the important question is whether the RLC
should endorse one or more proposals being offered by
members of our Advisory Board. There are plans from
Jeff Flake, John Shadegg and Sam Johnson that we may
prefer to no reform at all ... 'steps in the right direction'.
Suggestions and discussion here are welcome.
