Notes: During the week, George W. Bush outlined a plan to revamp the Social Security system. His plan would allow private investment of a portion of an individual's payroll taxes. The plan is without details which Bush says will come later. Some editorial writers have praised Bush for a radical move that gets a dialogue about Social Security going. Others criticize the sketchy plan for its failure to address what they believe will be a necessary increase in taxes or a diminishment of payouts to save the system from going broke as baby boomers begin to retire. Others, saying that Social Security is intended as a secure, minimum retirement income, criticize the Bush plan as being too risky to individuals if there is a downturn in the economy. 05.19.00
