    aspect of this poorly conceived plan for the destruction of Social Security, is the fact that the surplus of SS is tied up in buying down the national debt at the moment.  It looks good on paper.

    To suggest that the surplus should be placed in private accounts would further increase the national debt to the extent that those funds would have to be  repaid to SS before they could be invested.  Which means that the government will have to borrow that money from someplace else.
