Social Security: Fix #1

The first action the Doug Administration will take as President is to eliminate the Congressional and Executive Branch Retirement funds, and place all elected and appointed officials under the Social Security system. Moreover, all of these will pay at the Self-Employment rate, rather than the employee rate. This will force us to live with the system. All completely retired officials will continue with the rate they have, but anyone currently in office will have all relevant assets transferred to the SSA.

This will not make the system solvent, but will show the American people that their leaders and government is not above them. This will be a non-negotiable aspect of the Social Security fix.
