I think soccer is more popular.

Oh, the pension plan. It is a serious problem. The system is very
complicated. Some people fail to pay the premium because they don’t know the system very well. Also, because of the current recession,
some people don’t afford to pay the premium. I think we need to develop(ちょっと答えに詰まる)

… to develop an easy-to-understand and fair system.

Yes, sometimes.

Thank you.
