No Pozen, no plan

From the subscription-only CQ, via Think Progress:

Robert Pozen, whose “progressive indexing” plan was firmly endorsed by the president at a high-profile press conference last month, has said that Bush should drop his plans for private accounts.
[Pozen] said Wednesday that Bush should “back away” from the other half [of his Social Security plans] – the insistence that individual investment accounts be created in the program…
“I would advise the president to say that carve-out accounts are no longer required,” Pozen said in an interview after a debate at the American Enterprise Institute with Brookings Institution scholar Peter R. Orszag, a leading critic of Bush’s proposal. Bush, Pozen said, should indicate that he is “willing to have a package that, if otherwise satisfactory, does not have carve-out accounts.”

So with Pozen gone, there’s… who, exactly?
