Bush looks to reform Social Security.... http://reuters.myway.com/article/20...2_RTRIDST_0_NEWS-BUSH-SOCIAL-SECURITY-DC.html How many of you are aware that originally SS was meant to be temporary and allowed for states/counties to vote themselves out of the federal system?? In the late 70's, when SS looked like it would be bankrupt, a few of Texas counties did just that. They then started holding talks with other states and counties to teach them how they too could opt out. Lawmakers in washington rushed in to stop this from taking place. They removed the opt out clause, but were forced to leave the original three counties to their own devices, due to a grandfather clause. It's a shame we have learned that the current system is the ONLY right way.
