Exactly. Since the stock market is like a savings account paying 30% interest, why not put all SS money there?
The best way to fight it, I think, is stall the whole thing until the bubble bursts. Should be any time now.
Alternatively, one could try to explain to people that the stock market will _not_ give 30% returns, or even 15% or 10% real returns, forever. I've tried to, and don't recommend it. Very painful.
