I just watched our president in his news conference refer to 1.7 trillion dollars in U.S. treasury bonds backing Social Security as " a file drawer full of unfunded debt". In his next breath, he stated that those who feared investing their private accounts in the stock market could choose U.S. Treasury bonds, backed by "the full faith and credit of the U.S. government". Can he hear himself? Are you listening?
