The reasons why the Vice President is against the Bush social security reforms is he has no real answers and does want to be party to cutting back jobs in the social security bureaucracy. No matter what reforms are put in place some people are bound to suffer in the short term, but no politician looks in the long term. Social Security as it exists today cannot be saved unless the system is set back to what it was originally envisioned and the Congress stops stealing fund money to pay off debt and programs. The time is coming clear for a grass roots movement for major revamping of social security. I sincerely believe that wage earners be given the choice of contributing to their social security account or their own IRA-but it most be either one. If the wage earner contributes to their IRA, then they should not be taxed on this contribution. The plus is there will be more funds available for investment and growth, keeping the economy robust and possibly insuring a better retirement.
