    No. You will get whatever the government provides you in a Medicaid version retirement under the current SS system.

    No. The Devil just retired from being Secretary of State so I suspect she is in New York and not the details.
    That is way too confusing. Lets just let the gov't have our paychecks and send us what we deserve.

    And a lower return, and no actual ownership. At least you would have property rights to your mutual funds - you have no right to receive social security payments.

    Calling Hillary Clinton the Devil is insulting to the Devil. The Devil is at least competent.

    To try and make someone contribute to Mutual Funds is outrageous

    Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't give them any ideas.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I think you're an absolute genius and I wish you were running the country instead of the current crew.

    It's a great idea and over decades, could be an alternative to social security - or not, since we'll see how well this works on a modest scale.
