SOMEBODY PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME
This would not only fund social security permanently, we could even afford to raise benefits. AND STILL SAVE 700 BILLION DOLLARS!
Am I missing something here?
have been wondering if you got your ticket to go see gw later today.. afterall they said that they were having community members in attendance to hear all these new plans.. it couldnt possibly be that they only want those members of the communities that agree with him there could it??
and speaking of expenses, why not save all the money being spent flying around the nation trying to gain support for a system change that only 46% of the public is in favor of (depending on which poll you read) and use those funds to help balance the social security deficit?? oh thats right, that is what a financially responsible individual would do..
Whenever anyone makes a legitimate complaint, like, "Hey, when I retire, I might have to eat cat food to survive!" the GWB magicians wave a pretty silk scarf and say "Look over there! Bare breast! Family Values! Must protect the children!"
And damned if it doesn't work every time.

And yes, the 'mercican people are easily distracted.
Thankfully polls show that most people are still too confused by Bush's plan to support messing with a good thing.
His whole plan all along has been to bankrupt the federal government so they can start getting rid of the "handouts" under the guise of "balancing the budget" - it's exactly what Reagan did.
