Lest there were any doubt:
Former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey said Friday that Social Security should be phased out rather than saved. “I think if you leave people free to choose, it will be phased out by competition,” the former Republican congressman from Lewisville told reporters before sharing a President’s Day Dinner with the Smith County Republican Club…He said Social Security must remain solvent long enough to ensure older Americans collect on their lifelong payments into the system. But Americans who are at least younger than 50 should be allowed to divert their Social Security payments into personal accounts, he said. “If it is such a great deal, why does the government have to make it mandatory,” he said.
Looks like it’s not just College Republicans owning up to wanting the most popular government program of our time eliminated.
