05/09/2005: Benefit HOGS
Paul Krugman (NY Times) has this absolute GEM about the Bush - “How to add Injury to the Insult of getting elected by the barest hair on his chinny-chin-chin Mandate and Political Capital to Spend” Presidency – final turning of the screws to attempt to paint his revises crock’o’crap Soc. Sec. Plan as “offering” a real solution which show up how Democrats (as David Brooks put it) …don’t really mean the “wealthy” (depending on that definition) should provide a shared sacrifice and accept cuts now for the priviledges and benefit of “Saving Soc. Sec.” today.
Mr. Krugman writes:
”…Before I take on this final insult to our intelligence, let me deal with a fundamental misconception: the idea that President Bush's plan would somehow protect future Social Security benefits.
If the plan really would do that, it would be worth discussing…”
Take a full read through The Final insult and Krugman’s explanation to this fundamental BIG LIE in dealing with the latest Right Wing Hogwash at what “On the Table Now” --“Come and get it…Sooie, Sooie, Soooooie” --for all those benefit HOGS out there. [And you KNOW who you are...right?]
