Social Security should be eliminated.
Anyone with a brain knows that Social Security is a fallback. No one RELIES on SS for retirement (or if they do, they shouldn’t be expecting too much). It’s the backup. The backstop. Without that, THEN what do you propose we do? Our hypothetical Mary invested in what she had available to her…her 401k from work. She didn’t have the money available to her to buy real estate as an investment. She didn’t have the money available to day trade. And even if she had, what if real estate had plummeted? What if she lost it all in an Enron day trade? [kerri News]
