I’ve been thinking about this over the weekend, and AJ over at Strata-Sphere posted the same this morning. If competition is good for health care – so much so we need a “public” option – how about competition in public schools (vouchers) and for Social Security (private accounts)?
But nooooooooooo. They don’t want the private sector getting involved with the public education system, those vouchers just take away money from the public system.
And God forbid a small percentage of your Social Security taxes be placed in a private, low-risk account which you can manage yourself. Nooooooo. We saw the stock market take a dive – the federal government must hold that money for you so it is protected.
