The Social Security debate rages on. Today, Real Clear Politics linked a Robert Reich editorial on the subject, entitled Social Security's Generation Gap. (Robert Reich was the nation's Labor Secretary under President Clinton). RCP followed that up with some commentary of their own:
The vital omission here - one which Democrats have been making since the Social Security debate began - is that no one is obligated to do anything under Bush's plan. Those who have anxiety over the idea of a personal account or worry they may end up worse off down the road (however unlikely that might be) can simply stick with the current system.
Sounds eerily similar to what I said in my Tortured Logic post (March 4th).
