Kick Us Out of Office, Pretty PleaseThey're really asking for it.
Says House Majority Leader John Boehner:
Q: Where does Social Security reform stand?Don't bet on it, Mr. Tan Man.
And says Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson:
Although his two predecessors were carried off the field after bruising political battles, new Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said Tuesday that he won't shy from the fight to overhaul Social Security.Oh yeah? If you're serious about not shying away from problems, why not address the issue of the budget deficit first, a much bigger and more serious problem exacerbated by Bush's wanton spending and ridiculous tax cuts? Then again, you're no more than a glorified cheerleader just like John Snow before you; I wouldn't be surprised if you go on the Social Security bamboozlement tour like he did.
These guys are so wrapped up in pushing the official Bush agenda -- and make no mistake, they never took privatization off the table --they just ignore the will of the American people who strongly oppose their plan to destroy Social Security by gutting its guaranteed benefit feature through privatization.
I'm not sure what crazy game they're playing this time. A show of false bravado? A "privatization or bust" death wish? Because if they keep talking about privatization like this before the elections, the electorate would be more than happy to hand them their heads on a silver platter come November.
