CNN on social security

Whose money is it anyway?
The debate over Social Security is as much philosophical as it is fiscal. Should money you pay into Social Security be earmarked for your retirement or, if you don't use the funds, for your heirs?

Or is it money that should be paid as a social insurance tax to ensure a steady base of income for the nation's elderly, with the understanding that when you retire you will receive support as well?

Where do you think a majority of Americans fall on this issue? I would be willing to bet that nearly 60 percent would choose the first option.
