Dear Senator -
I am writing to express my concern over President Bush's plan to privatize Social Security. This administration's attempt at "reform" will only hurt working families, and will cost the American taxpayers much more in the long run that strengthening our current system.
Social Security is a sound system that has provided for American workers for over 60 years, and will be able to meet 100% of its obligations for the next 39 years. With responsible changes, we can ensure that Social Security and Medicare will be there for all American workers and their families into the future.
But privatization will dramatically increase administrative costs, with no guarantee of better benefits for workers. Privatization will only be better for insurance companies, banks, and Wall Street.
