The guests discussed the social security policies of President Bush and Senator John Kerry. Ms. Freese spoke about Senator Kerry’s position. She asserted that President Bush’s plan for Social Security lacks adequate resources, while Senator Kerry’s plan involves finding “the money to stabilize the system without having to make significant changes that would impact either retirees or the younger generation.” Ms. Engen claimed that the President’s plan would not alter existing benefits and calls for a “mixed system” rather than total privatization. Ms. Freese and Ms. Engen responded to telephone calls, faxes, and electronic mail from viewers. close
