George W. Bush led the charge when he indicated his biggest domestic
failure was the his inability to privatize Social Security (SS). Now
billionaires are meeting at the Ronald Reagan building in DC to develop
plans to privatize SS.

This conservative plan will screw millions of Americans going into
retirement. Margaret Thatcher privatized SS in the UK in 1979 and the
program was  a huge failure.

As a result of the conservative experiment with SS, the basic state
pension in the United Kingdom -- the equivalent of U.S. Social Security
-- is today lower than that in all but four other European countries:
Portugal, Greece, Belgium, and Ireland. The UK payment  is also lower
than the US SS pension.
