Again, WHERE do you put the money?
HOW is it “invested”??
If the money goes into US Bonds, the money is SPENT, period!
There is NO way to avoid this fact, other than to “PRIVATIZE” and put the money in mutual funds or something, like Bush suggested.
Investing at simple interest would have been huge if the funds hadn’t been robbed. The idea of individualized accounts makes pretty good sense, but that is future and somewhat corrective. I was referring more to the embezzlement that has been taking place since the 60s. Had the money coming in not been absorbed into the general fund to waste on LBJ’s soft socialistic ideals this conversation would be much different today.
