This Sums it Up Nicely

From today's Wall Street Journal:

It is an ideological debate about whether Social Security remains a social insurance safety net, which redistributes a modest amount of income from rich to poor, or moves toward greater individual opportunity, risk and reward.

For the record, I am firmly in the safety net camp. Which would make me conservative on the matter of social security (although conservatives would probably prefer to get rid of the system altogether).
