Jeb Bush & the Social Security Solution

Jeb Bush thinks we should privatize Social Security. You know, that program that's flush till like 2035 or near there, but every republican is using to bait the voters?  Does he say this because big business hasn't made a mess of anything else? "Wall St. Bail Out??? What bail out? The one Wall St. never paid back to the American public?

Eh. Easy come, easy go.

Then there's the health care biz in the US before Obama care required them to use more of your premiums for actual health care? (Before then your premiums went to pay for the big bonuses for the CEO's.)

Yeah, I'd trust big biz. We could always just bail them out when they trash it, right?

Jeb also wants to raise the retirement age. Probably because he's not worried about his own retirement.

With a net worth of $10 million, does Jeb really understand what he'd doing to the middle class? Maybe not, but I'm betting he does understand big biz. Which is probably why he wants to hand them your Social Security.

Bottom line~
Social Security does need help, but turning it into a business can only spell trouble. What if Jeb and his friend$  just chipped in a little more to keep the system going? The EconomicPopulist has a great idea, check out his solution to the Social Security problem. I think he's on to something.
