    if we could trust Wall Street with our retirement savings.  Only a fool would believe that, so he's a fool for suggesting it.

    Seriously, what would his plan be if 50% of retirees lost everything in another stock market crash?  Let them starve?  We joke about it in a "as if..." way, but that's exactly the situation that led to Social Security and Medicare.  He REALLY wants to return to pre-1930s America?

    Not to mention that he thinks his audience is stupid enough to forget that the system is called "Social Security Insurance".... and he's right.
