Bush: Time for Social Security Reform is NOW
Bush: Now's The Time To Confront Social Security
WASHINGTON Dec 16, 2004 — President Bush said Thursday that "now
is the time to confront Social Security" to deal with a projected $3.7 trillion,
75-year shortfall and give younger workers the ability to invest some of their
contributions into personal accounts.
Trying to follow this issue through MSM coverage is very difficult. You cannot fully discuss such a topic in a 3-minute TV piece. On Pundit Review Radio we have spoken with some of the leading proponents of social security reform in very comprehensive, long-form interviews which should give you greater understanding of the problem, potential solutions and what it
is really at stake.
Pundit Review Radio, Interview with Charles Jarvis
Mr. Jarvis served in the Reagan and Bush I administrations and is currently Chairman and Chief Executive of USA Next and United Seniors Association (USA).
We discussed President Bush's vision for an ownership society including his plans for individual voluntary retirement accounts in which American workers could invest a percentage of their social security payroll tax into the stock market. It was a very interesting discussion and we hope to have Mr. Jarvis back on the show soon to go into greater detail on this important topic.
Pundit Review Radio, Interview with Don Luskin
