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.
