Finally, Don Sheppard of High Springs raised the question: What's really motivating Social Security reform? The president is now pushing hard to have Social Security money put into the stock market in individual accounts.
I am glad to know that the AARP is finally doing something for the lower middle-class and poor people that are members of the organization by coming out against this plan.
There are people who have invested 30 to 40 years in Social Security. We don't need someone like President Bush doing away with it as we now know it. After all, he is responsible for 3 million jobs terminated since being in office, which, in turn, never contributed funds. Everyone from George Schultz (Bechtel) to Dick Cheney (Halliburton) to Daddy Bush (Carlyle Group) have financial interests in Social Security individual accounts.
