    Once you have proven yourself worthy of such singular attention, sure.

    I'll address this as you have included industry pros in my field.

    **I'd get the best insurance/annuity guys in the business to advise me on how to reform Social Security. That reform would effect people aged 45 and younger.
    This is pretty easy, put the SS funds in a guaranteed account or as was mentioned in early 2k a "lock box" if you will, let the fund rebuild itself and then fund qualified individual annuity accounts for those entering the market currently using the surplus funds after mandatory payouts are met. As the program becomes more solvent dedicate more funds towards annuity principle and for those qualified funds exempt the "tax ceiling" on retirement accounts. That should get the program completely solvent in 5-7 years and independent within around 15.
    **I'd reform our public assistance programs so that they were temporary programs. There'd be a time limit on the average bloke collecting public assistance; and those collecting would be required to attend trade schools/normal schools as if they had a full-time job.
    Treat these as investments, give a "period certain" for benefits that will end barring disabilities or other specific special needs. For those who cannot find gainful employment there should be a minimum mandatory standard for job seeking to be proven on a monthly basis. Special concessions can be granted for the impovershed seeking further education based on a mandatory minimum GPA. I think that would be enough to reform welfare in a meaningful way.
    **I'd reform Social Security Disability and toughen the standards for collecting it. Anyone with a "back problem" disability or "depression" disability would have to show up every day to perform community service of some sort. If they "couldn't," the burden of proof would have to be on them as to why they couldn't.
    Fully agree with this.
    **I'd reform V.A. disability to those same standards.
    I'd actually just get rid of the standard administrators that seem to make the system completely unworkable and replace them with actual industry professionals from the private sector, I think that would be the best fix.
