Bush's Social Security Sleight of Hand

Well, I guess if the more you talk about something, the more people think it sucks, the right thing to do is definitely just to try to sneak it by. This must be part of that bipartisan cooperation and solutions he was talking about during his State of the Union speech.

I knew that major in magic would pay off for him some day.

I love harry potter, too.

Actually I am waiting for 1076 days when a Demo sits in the chair and tells us we need to do something quick about Social Security like raise taxes by 20%.

Please don't mention Harry Potter. Especially here where he doesn't seem to have anything to do with what we're talking about. It's bad enough I have to hear about him everytime a new book comes out, or a new movie, or a title for a new book is announced, or JK Rowling announces that she's considering writing a couple of pages that day, or whatever.

I don't know the extent of the problems (if there are any) with Social Security, and I think it probably needs to be talked about. However, what we definitely don't want to do is pass a ridiculous plan that would cost WAY more money, and wouldn't fix the problem, even according to the idiot that suggested it.

JRH

There is more evidence that social security is in trouble than to justify Global warming.

Hate Bush all you want but smell the humus. There are more people living longer and more people retiring than working.

I have in no endorsed Bush's plan.

I am just saying let's move from a silly deabte about wether we have a problem to discussing soultions.

You want to know why Katrina happened the same reason this too will happen--partisan politics.

There is evidence to show that there are problems, not to show that there is a crisis.

More people retiring than working doesn't necessarily have to be a problem. It all depends on who puts in what, and who gets what back.

I'm glad that you haven't endorsed Bush's plan, because it is not a plan at all.

It would be easier to discuss solutions if Bush didn't keep harping on his "plan" that even he says would not fix the problem.

Yeah, partisan politics suck. I'm pretty sick of it.
