The next time you hear a congressman or senator bashing Social Security reform, ask them this question: If the system's so great, why aren't you in it?

They have choices in their retirement plan. They can pick from a variety of options: stocks, bonds, indexes.

You name it, they have it.

We don't.

Is that right? Is that fair?

Then ask them this: If you like the Social Security system the rest of us mere mortals have, why don't you junk the system that you have.

How many would do that? How many would risk that? Probably not many, because when push comes to shove, what they've got is better than what we've got.

They know it. They just don't want you to know it.

Look, there are plenty of ways to fix Social Security.

Some things we'll sacrifice. But truth shouldn't be one of them.

Sounds right. Then why are you (and Neil Cavuto) spreading misinformation.

In 1983, Public Law 98-21 required Social Security coverage for federal civilian employees first hired after 1983 and closed the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) to new federal employees and Members of Congress. All incumbent Members of Congress were required to be covered by Social Security, regardless of when they entered Congress. Members who had participated in CSRS before 1984 could elect to stay in that plan in addition to being covered by Social Security or elect coverage under an 'offset plan' that integrates CSRS and Social Security. Under the CSRS Offset Plan, an individual's contributions to CSRS and their pension benefits from that plan are reduced ('offset') by the amount of their contributions to, and benefits from, Social Security.
