What would you think if someone had put their {future} privatized account money (deducted from social security) in Enron?

A. I would think it was pretty stupid.

B. I would think that it was either illegal or impossible.

There is no proposal on the table which allows investment in individual stocks. They are all index funds of some sort or another.

I am really tired of ignorant people who keep bringing up this non-possibility as if it were a real threat.
