Sure. I mean, it's a completely fair question to ask what's going to happen to people that don't save if you allow them to opt out of SS now. He'll be dead long before today's 25 year olds want to retire. Some other president is going to be forced to deal with the public policy issue of people not being able to afford to retire. This was a meaningful problem when SS was created, it's going to be an even bigger problem decades from now when people are going to be living much, much longer than they were when SS was created.
