The Road map for Republicans allows Wall Street speculators to use benefits as poker chips with taxpayers of all ages forced to cover the losses. If you hated TARP for the banks, you'll reject TARPing Social Security.
The Roadmap for Republicans begins with the same privatization path proposed by President Bush and soundly rejected by the American people in 2005. According to its architect, prospective Republican Presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan, It "offers workers under 55 the option of investing over one third of their current Social Security taxes into personal retirement accounts. Includes a property right so they can pass on these assets to their heirs, and a guarantee that individuals will not lose a dollar they contribute to their accounts, even after inflation."
