People Talk: Do you think Social Security benefits should be means tested?

Michael Stroud, El Dorado Hills: “No. You’ve paid in to it. And you deserve the return on the investment. A lot of people die before they ever collect a penny.”

Skye Kolb, Placerville: “No. I think the whole thing should be privatized. I want to be responsible for my money, and I’ll accept the positive or negative consequences.”

Stacey Ballard, Cameron Park: “For retirement benefits, why not? If wealthy people don’t need it the money it could certainly be used for those who do.”

Sylvia Garcia, El Dorado Hills: “Yes. It’s a good idea. Right now everyone gets it but not everyone needs it.”

Shannon Pifer, El Dorado Hills: “No. That’s not the way it was envisioned. Changing it would require restructuring the whole program, and you’d probably need to let people opt out.”

  1. I really don’t understand the Government. How can one agency say SS is good until 2037 then last October Pres.Obama say Checks are not going to be printed unless Congress acts? Was that black mail? We let the Gov handle these programs because we can not trust private orgs. What was the name of that energy company a few years ago, Enron? and Wall Street? Now who are we supposed to trust? Company officials don’t take an Oath when hired!
