Privatizing Social Security
There are many people who still don't understand how the Social Security system in this country really works. Most people think that each individual person has a private account. They believe, that when the social security tax gets taken out of their paycheck it goes directly and solely into that private account, where it grows and continues to grow until that person finally retires, and that's where their social security retirement money comes from. Such accounts don't and have never existed, although many feel that creating these types of accounts for each individual tax payer would make the distribution of funds more fair to those who, over the years have contributed more to the tax on account of better paying jobs.
If social security were privatized then the individuals would have a greater control over the funds.
