Public Agenda’s Issue Guide on Social Security Available for Your Use    

Today’s Public Agenda Alert announced that President Bush “ruled out increating Social Security payroll taxes to bail our the program and repeated his call to create private retirement accounts instead.” Public Agenda reminds us about their issue guide on Social Security, stating that their ‘Choicework’ discussion guides lay out the different alternatives to reform.

“With Choicework, we’re not claiming to have the “correct” solution to a problem. What you’ll find are four different points of view about how to address the issue. The broad choices we present are designed to be discussion starters, not a political program. Each point of view comes with the arguments for and against, along with some potential costs and tradeoffs, because choosing a course of action should include honestly facing its drawbacks.”
