Old and Poor? Just Sell Your House
So says Republican Senator George Allen. If social security privatization doesn't work quite as well as planned just sell your home. The Senator didn't say where you would live, but what the hell. You won't have to do yard work any more.
And by the time they retire, they're going to have a pretty good nest egg there and they don't need as big a house, usually, because they don't want to be cutting grass and trimming hedges, and that is good for the economy as well.
