article description
Congress has discussed several reform proposals [for the Social Security system], but has failed to agree on a solution that maintains the redistributive structure of the current system while also providing economic advantages. This paper consists of several additional sections that logically demonstrate why a fully funded system with the buildup of a large permanent trust fund is the most advantageous Social Security reform proposal.
