Of a sort, yes, and its the kind of economic program that the right tends to celebrate and embrace. Certainly its better than the goofy 5k baby bond she liked.

I have the feeling even Republicans would not want to go too far with partial privatization of Social Security. The Democrats should relax on that point.

If privatization went too far, Congress soon would be tempted to limit or influence which stocks can be bought in Social Security plans. After a time, Congress might even order certain arbitrarily unpopular stocks divested. We'd suddenly discover that Congress directly controls Wall Street.

We liberals don't want Wall Street controlling Congress, and I don't think liberals or conservatives really want Congress taking over Wall Street.
