    but you underestimated a couple of things.  First, the cost of health care has gone up about 100% under Bush.

    Second, privatization of SS would do nothing to help on the future projected deficits of the program.  In fact, they would make them worse, because it would involve taking money out.

    Bush's SS privatization plan only helped the future projected deficits because it adjusted the future benefit increases to be tied to inflation rather than wage increases as is currently the case.  This adjustment could be done without privatizing SS (although it is a bad idea in either case).
