Howard Phillips on Social Security

2000 Constitution Party Nominee for President


Keep Congress out of Social Securityís pocket

Source: 2000 National Political Awareness Test , Jan 13, 2000

Restore Trust Fund while privatizing

Money must be restored to the Social Security Trust Fund so that Americans who have been required to pay taxes into that system will get back every penny to which they are entitled - and we will do this even as we move toward the complete privatization of the Social Security system. Individual Americans will take back from the bureaucrats and politicians control of their own retirement planning as befits the free citizens of a free society.

Privatize Social Security & Medicare

The privatization of Social Security and Medicare will help us avoid the danger of giving corporate & government bureaucrats control over the life & death of our people, in a context where the demand for health care is satisfied, not in accordance with the checks & balances of the marketplace or the compassion of the doctor/patient relationship, but rather the political & bureaucratic determination of those for whom cost effectiveness may outweigh the sacred significance of each innocent human life.
