Social Security transition for workers

I suggest that in the near future that workers pay into a Thrift Savings Plan type of "nest egg" for their golden years rather then putting social security funds into a program that will not be available for those same workers that put money into it for decades... Basically the more you work, the more money that you will be putting into that fund, which will be used to take care of your needs as you get into your late 60's. I hate the notion that I am paying into a program that will not be there for me. I think that the government should mandate a fund that allows people to save for their retirement whether they want to or not.
