Have you ever noticed how quiet Social Security is? You turn 65, they sign you up and thereafter you get a check in your bank account every month the rest of your life. Democrats built that and, with a few adjustments, want to keep it as it is now.

Republicans don’t care much for Social Security. They would privatize it and create an account for you. You would contribute to it for all your working life. Then things would get very busy. You would have to study the stock market and/or the many mutual funds and invest in them. Or have someone else do that for you, hoping he is adequate. All your life you would continue to work at keeping the fund intact and growing, and hope for no downturns.
