Currently, members of the US Congress may participate in the Social Security plan and the Medicare plan, but they don\'t have to. They have a plan that gives them full pay and benefits when they leave office. They have no stake in seeing that either Social Security or Medicare is solvent. Consequently, they play political football with the issue and don\'t resolve the issues. OK, it\'s time to level the playing field. Let Social Security and Medicare be the only plan available to them. They will not be eligible for any other US Government-sponsored retirement plan.
The people who have the greatest stake in this issue are the men, women, and children who work for a living. In other words, all US citizens.
