Some Social Security Progress?

Well, it seems that some members of the Democratic party are unwilling to follow the Kennedy-Kerry juggernaut into oblivion. Take a look at the link above. Two Democrats have now said they are "open" to the concept of private accounts, particularly as a means to stimulate the frighteningly low rate of personal savings in the U.S.

This is fantastic news. Bush, specifically said in his SOTU that he had a proposal, but that everything was on the table. Good for Senators Carper and Nelson for taking W at his word. I remain convinced that we will get real progress on this problem in 2005, thanks to the President's courage.

Then its on to Medicare, and HSA's
