eh, basically what i was saying, was, benifiting the public by putting that 2 tril. into the fund, vs. letting people invest on their own. heres a few scenarios.
say you are a shitty investor, the portion you are allowed to invest, well you get nothing, therefore you are broke=no retirement fund.
option two is the market crashes, or a bank goes out of business, your money? gone. nada. nothing left. youre screwed.
or look at the status quo, if youre on S.S. and you get a disability, since you dont have benifits from work, (youre retired) the S.S. fund pays for these disabilities. Under the new program, you pay out of your fund, once its depleted, you have to start working again. its not logical for you to do this.
if you want to invest outside of your SS great, do it, put a few bucks aside every paycheck for a decade, and you will have a snowball effect like you want, but taking your money from SS, and risking losing it, thats wreckless.
