Yes many don't want to think about social security, but we have too. I like the idea of personal accounts, one reason is the government won't be able to use it for when they want. What Bush is trying to create is a government 401K retirement account, which is needed. One your money would grow more this way, you won't be dependent on social security checks the rest of your life. I thought it was very democratic of him suggesting that the rich won't get as much, and the poor would get more benefits. The fact is social security was great in its day, well the time has come to make it more like we know. The most important part of his plan should cover education, most people don't completely understand investments and how they work, they need to be taught.
