Lipstick on a Pig-Republicans are going to draft a Social Security bill anyway

29 April 2005 at 12:11:58 PM

Republicans in Congress are cowing down to pressure from Bush to push his failing agenda, despite the unpopularity of Bush's privatization plan, compounded by the crazy welfare social security idea he pitched last night that would cut benefits for all except the poor. (Since he's cutting all the other social programs that benefit the poor, maybe he figured he'd give them "something" back).

It appears that they will be mixing in other programs the elderly might actually favor, in order to make the cuts palatable, in other words, as Bush would say, to hide the fact that they are gutting social security by mixing in other somewhat related programs. Part of what they plan to do is include the privatization scheme by allowing younger people to divert social security payments into private, government-controlled accounts, which would effectively gut social security.

What has happened to appealing to people's noble, Christian ideals that believe in societal good, helping the poor and not being out for number one? Bush's "ownership society" is the most selfish idea we have heard and must appeal to those who are out for number one at anyone else's expense, as long as they get theirs.
