Yes. USA Accounts in Clinton Adm. I wrote often for a Universal 401K (and reversing our upside-down retirement tax incentives). Here are my op-eds & proposals in 2004, 2005 & 2014. A 401(k) for All

Own the libs by turning Denali National Park, which is like 2x the size of the West Bank, into Palestine and then opening it up to oil drilling.

Criticisms of Facebook aren’t mutually inconsistent, the problem is that Facebook is bad and the right thing to do would be to turn it off.

By contrast there are plenty of studies indicating that real moves to desegregate neighborhood schools would, despite being politically tougher, actually help people.

The implication is that shifting the admissions system around to change the racial mix of the schools would not actually help (or hurt!) anyone. Makes it a perfect playground for takes.

There should be both cases of kids who scored high enough for Bronx Science but opted for Brooklyn Tech because the commute is more convenient, and also regression discontinuity studies of kids near the cutoff points.

There must be studies that try to ascertain whether attending Bronx Science etc. is actually advantageous per se or if it’s just that the kids with test scores high enough to get in do well whether or not they enroll.

There have been two polls conducted this year gauging 's support in New York state, and one poll measuring her support nationwide. There have been no polls of the Democratic Nevada caucuses or California primary.
