Re: Today/now polls

Eva, I suspect one problem is that many, many people who think the stock market is a better place than an annuity for their money have no direct experience with or knowledge of the stock market, how it works, and who make money from it. And, unfortunately, it is much more complicated and difficult to understand than, say, stem cell research.

All of Bush's talk about privatizing SS is F%#$@!! crazy! Pardon my french.
Anyone who has lost money in the stock market or whose 401k has lost money
