http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Some Democrats are virulently against allowing citizens to invest their money privately instead of throwing it into Social Security. Yet they don’t trust their retirement nest egg to Social Security; instead, they invest it in stocks, bonds, and land holdings. Take a look at the assets held by some of the most prominent opponents of Social Security, and ask yourself: If they want to privately invest their money, why are they trying to prevent us from doing so?
