A Bipartisan Fix for Retirees

Jeff Sessions wrote in WaPo In the aftermath of their November election victory, Democratic leaders have pledged to work on a bipartisan basis to solve the problems facing our nation. In that spirit, I suggest that Democrats and Republicans can successfully work together to create personal savings accounts for all Americans outside the Social Security system, an idea that politicians from both political parties have supported for years

Why just outside Social Security. Why not allow a worker to put as much as he wants in the account, and let a matching amount of his Social Security Taxes join it.
