Clinton's Plan For Fixing Social Security

Bill Clinton has an interest plan for fixing the Social Security problem. It makes sense to an extent, but I see a few problems.

For one, we shouldn't legalize the illegal immigrants who are already in this country. That would only legitimize their law-breaking and would add incentive for foreigners thinking about crossing into this country under the law's radar.

For another, adding more workers to our economy to pay into the system would only solve part of the problem. One of the biggest reasons why we're in crisis mode with the program now is because politicians keep taking money out of the system, money meant to pay benefits, and using it to fund other projects. So far, none of this money has ever been paid back. If we want Social Security to become and remain solvent the money paid in by citizens must be kept locked up and away from the politicians.

Which is where the private accounts come in.

But on the whole, I'm certainly not opposed to allow more legal immigrants to enter this country each year. I think its a healthy and positive thing for this country.

Did Clinton say anything about this during his eight years in charge?

Take illegals out of the country.
Allow more folks in legally.
Leave SS money alone, or let us manage (at least some of) our own money.

Actually, arb, Clinton did say a lot about Social Security reform. He called Social Security's situation a "crisis" on multiple occasions, as well.

I knew what he (and other Dems) said about SS then, and am amused (and amazed, and appalled) by the same Dems *now* saying that everything is fine.

Regarding illegal immigration, I remember now, he lobbed a few cruise missiles into Mexico City.

Let us give Clinton his due. He should be an authority on sucking the resources from Social Security.

brad:

The Government hasn't taken some of the SSI money, they,ve taken it all. The money is either paid out as benefits or traded for US bonds.

Puting my money in the bank at interest is risky, but if I lend my wife money and she pays me interest, we are richer, right?

The fight over personal accounts isn't about taking money out of SSI, it's about who owns it while it's there.
