The next time you hear a congressman or senator bashing Social Security (search) reform, ask them this question: If the system's so great, why aren't you in it?
They have choices in their retirement plan. They can pick from a variety of options: stocks, bonds, indexes.
You name it, they have it.
Is that right? Is that fair?
Then ask them this: If you like the Social Security system the rest of us mere mortals have, why don't you junk the system that you have.
How many would do that? How many would risk that? Probably not many, because when push comes to shove, what they've got is better than what we've got.
They know it. They just don't want you to know it.
Look, there are plenty of ways to fix Social Security.
Some things we'll sacrifice. But truth shouldn't be one of them.
So the next time you hear your congressman saying he's looking after your retirement, look at his. Then tell him to look in the mirror.
