A Cato Plan for Social Security Reform

Capitol Hill Briefing
January 30, 2004 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM EST

B-340 Rayburn House Office Building

Featuring Michael Tanner, Director, Cato Project on Social Security Choice and Jagadeesh Gokhale, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute.

With Social Security moving to the forefront of the political and policy battleground, the Cato Institute will outline a detailed proposal to reform Social Security. The plan is designed to bring Social Security into long-term solvency and allow younger workers to privately invest 6.2 percentage points of their payroll taxes through individual accounts. A pair of Cato experts will review details of the Institute’s proposal and discuss the state of the reform debate in the wake of President Bush’s State of the Union address.
