Should workers be allowed to invest in private Social Security accounts?
Asked at Hy-Vee Food & Drug Store, 3504 Clinton Parkway on January 3, 2005
“I think we should. The chances of me getting Social Security when I retire are pretty slim.”
“Yes, definitely. It’s my money, and I want the freedom to decide where it goes. I just want that choice.”
“Yes. I think they should be allowed. I don’t exactly agree with the president’s plan as someone who is approaching senior citizenship.”
“If people are allowed to invest, and not touch the money until their retirement age, then it is a good way for everybody to have some control over their own financial future.”
