wonderful idea has had a set back. Just think of the seniors seeing there social security money GONE!!!!! Iam for putting money into market but we have 401!s and roths, investing plenty of ways to get it into market.This a bad day so lets make the best of it.Good day
So we should have to pay social security and invest in 401ks + IRAs. Social Security is on the road to insolvency for sure.. there is no doubt about that fact. That is an immutable truth.. Social Security is on a perpetual longterm downward spiral. Markets recover.. SS will not.
Who said you had to put it into stocks? Nobody. Most of the people close to retirement reduce their stock holdings in the first place. If you are close to retirement and heavy into volitle stock you already are screwing up.
