Social security reform is something that is paramount in the coming years. If government had invested the money properly instead of robbing from the fund every year we wouldn't be having this discussion. As things are now it's estimated that reserves will be depleted by 2035 according to the social security board of trustees. That means basically anyone currently under the age of 50 really has no chance of seeing hardly anything from social security. To ensure that the next generation can retire with dignity I propose that everyone under 60 be given the option to opt-out of social security with mandatory opt-out for those 30/35 and under. When you opt out you will receive a private investment account that you control funded by your 6.2% contribution as well as your employers matching contribution. You will be able to invest this fund in anything from the default government bonds to stocks mutual funds and more. You will also be able to borrow against your fund tax and interest free for 2 reasons. The first is a down payment on the home because everyone deserves the American dream. The 2nd is to start a small business because it is the small businesses that drive the economy and employee the majority of the workforce in this country.
FDR had this to say about Social security "No Greater Tragedy exists in modern civilization than the aged, worn-out worker who after a life of ceaseless effort and useful productivity must look forward for his declining years to a poorhouse. A modern social consciousness demands a more humane and efficient arrangement."
