If only...

Daniel Casse has a book review in the WSJ documenting a secret agreement between President Clinton and Speaker Gingrich to reform entitlements.
When they finally met in October 1997 – in the Treaty Room in the East Wing of the White House – Mr. Clinton agreed to push for the creation of private Social Security accounts in return for Mr. Gingrich's promise to abandon a GOP push for further tax cuts. They also made plans for a commission that would recommend more private-sector involvement in Medicare.
Unfortunately, the actual plans are still secret.
