(It has actually been done several times.)

But, to the issue at hand.
At the end of 2Q, 2011, for instance, there were $18.2 trillion in total retirement assets. Do you really think for one second that 18 trillion dollars hasn't caught the attention of people who really believe the wealth should be redistributed?

I don't.

There are a lot of different ways to do it and label it, but I have no doubt that ultra liberal politicians have at least talked about it.
I sure miss the country I grew up in.
