No, I'm not saying it's illegal, I'm just saying that if Social Security was privatized, it would be a lot harder for poor people to be able to pay for it...
Besides, wouln't it be better if they (the government) took the money that is used to pay for war and used it to pay for the Social Security costs? wouldn't that be a lot easier to do than a privatization? isn't health more important than foreign problems with other countries?
and believe me, you would have to live in a "third world country" like me to understand how different Social Security and private health are
