Social Security Reform: Wake Up, Media.

Patrick Ruffini has a great flash animation that explains some key details about public sentiment on Social Security reform:

If you can't view the flash animation, here is the text:

VOLUNTARY PERSONAL ACCOUNTS: THE CHOICE OF 60% OF AMERICANS

VOLUNTARY PERSONAL ACCOUNTS:
FAVORED BY 76% OF THOSE UNDER 30
FAVORED BY 56% OF THOSE OVER 50
AMERICA IS UNITED.

THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW.
46% SAY ACT IMMEDIATELY OR WITHIN 1-2 YEARS
JUST 9% SAY NO ACTION NEEDED

AND BY 5 TO 1, AMERICANS SAY MEDIA COVERAGE OF PROPOSALS TO FIX SOCIAL SECURITY IS TOO NEGATIVE.

IT'S TIME FOR MAINSTREAM MEDIA TO WAKE UP AND SMELL REALITY. AMERICANS WANT REFORM.

If we are to have private Social Security Accounts they should be totally private and totally under the control and discretion of the payer. Thus if you are a person who is seemingly risk adverse then you would opt for what government pays you now in interest and other income to continue growing your account. If there is a real surplus as claimed by both sides of the isle then some of us would be more aggressive asking for better rates of return and more aggressive investing. As for the government borrowing our Social Security Money, well we can be a very large bank. Perhaps the largest bank in the World. We can ask and receive competitive rates of return like the banks that earn more than 20% on our deposits. It is a fact then that we become the ownership society. We will have our government and officials in our debt, literally and figuratively. We will own all the assets and control how we invest our money.
