I don't like to jump on too many bandwagons, but I joined the Blog Alliance for Social Security Reform. This is a heated battle, and the Main Stream Media is pounding away daily against the idea of private accounts. You can hear people try to call it "giving money to Wall street fat cats" and other total rubbish. Another thing to watch is the call for increased Soc Sec taxes. If the current SS tax surplus gets spent on other things already, how will a tax increase save any money for the future debts we know are coming? The extra revenue will just be "loaned" to the government, mounting the debt even further. I pledge to keep posting about this until it either flies or dies. Meanwhile, go to the Blogger Alliance website and see some other good info on Social Security reform, and why we need it.
PS: I found them through Amy Ridenour's National Center Blog, a helluva blog! Check it out at http://www.nationalcenter.org/Blog.html
