11. Because, of course, we know that the average wage earner...
...has massive amounts of disposable income after mortgage/rent payments, health insurance premiums, the food budget, transportation, and saving for the kids' college fund, rainy day account, or what have you. :sarcasm:

Seriously, why are the 'cans still trotting out the notion that private accounts and the market are going to save us all? Did they miss the last three years or something? You could get away with the private account thing in a stock marekt boom, but forget about it today.
