From the article:
Financial planners have long compared retirement security to a three-legged stool supported by Social Security, personal savings and employee pensions. But that stool, never sturdy for many Americans, has grown even more unsteady in recent years.

Employee pensions have all but been eliminated replaced by the failed 401, 403, 457, IRA morass for full-time workers and nothing for part-timers. Now Romney & Ryan want to destroy the Social Security leg too.
