Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971233004, Paperback)This timely book explains how changes in American society have already created a public consensus favoring Social Security Choice. The politicians are behind the curve, but they'll eventually come around.
Focusing on broad public attitudes towards Social Security reform rather than policy wonk details, Rasmussen tells easy-to-understand anecdotes demonstrating how the drive for reform began in the popular culture decades ago... long before most politicians knew anything was happening.
In fact, President Franklin D. Roosevelt inadvertently laid the groundwork for reform at the same time he created the nation's retirement program. FDR convinced the nation that workers earn Social Security benefits by making "contributions" to the program throughout their working years.
Today, working Americans want the right to invest those contributions on their own. They are not repudiating FDR's premise; rather, they are accepting it, building upon it, and taking it one step further to what they see as a logical conclusion.
