Circle Jerks

Anyone want to explain why Thomas R. Saving, one of Public Trustees of the Social Security and Medicare Trust Fund, whose job is to a) hold the trust funds, b) report to the Congress each year on past and future status, c) report to the Congress immediately if the amount in either trust fund is too small, and d) review policies followed in managing trust funds and recommend changes, is listed as one of the experts for the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA), whose stated goal is "to develop and promote private alternatives to government regulation and control, solving problems by relying on the strength of the competitive, entrepreneurial private sector"?

Just asking.
