#188102 - What would trouble me ...
Responding to: ???'s previous message
... is that, apparently, not everyone, as evidenced by your disagreement, knows the same things about this "plan."

If there's to be a government-based pension system, in which money is withheld from your net income and paid into the coffers of the "retirement" plan, everyone should be properly informed. What's utterly ridiculous, here in the U.S, is that not even the people who vote in support or opposition of such measures are diligent enough to read and understand the things.

The widely lauded or maligned "Obama" healt-insurance-reform statute passed a year or two ago, is still widely misquoted or simply lied about, since nobody discussing it "has the time" or, IMHO, intelligence, to understand it. It is, of course, very complex, which is not helped by the fact that more of what is bandied about by both sides of the discussion is false than is true.

Do all people who contribute or have contributed to the existing retirement plan have access to its content? Have they examined and understood it? Is it reasonable to expect participants in an involuntary plan to study to understand the "ins and outs" of that plan, particularly when, like our legislators, the legislature instituting that plan don't even understand it themselves?
