This is something Bush has gotten right--the need for social security reform NOW http://www.whitehouse.gov/infocus/social-security/ I pretty much have to agree with a lot of Bush admin's stance on SS reform. What gives baby boomers the right to think that they can burden my generation (their own children) with SS? Why should my generation have to pay 50% more in tax in order for the government to be able to pay the SS benefits it promised or pay the same in SS tax now but take a 30% decrease in SS benefits in the future? SS taxes should be optional. Everyone should have the right to invest that money into a private account NOW. SS is going to need $27 trillion dollars in the future in order to stay afloat (which is over 2x's the US's entire GDP). There is absolutely no reason why my generation should be burdened with such a horrendous socialist program.
