Domestic Policy Issues
By Arnold Kling
I argue that on domestic policy, President Bush should focus on Social Security and health care.
Our existing system was designed when reaching the age of 65 meant that your active life was probably over, and you were likely to die within a decade. Going forward, we need a system that can accommodate everything from early retirement to seniors taking on second careers and new challenges in their 80’s. Personal accounts are the key to giving people more options as they age.
For Discussion. Are there other economic issues that ought to take precedence?
