The Mattress Plan Looks Better and Better
If you're feeling lost about the whole Social Security issue, Atrios will keep you on track and informed about the real issues. Kos also notes that on Sunday, VP Cheney actually admitted that their whole claim about the "crisis" is a red herring:
"We're going to borrow $758 [b]illion over the next 10 years to set up the personal retirement accounts. We think that's a manageable amount ... Trillions more after that," Cheney said, acknowledging that the personal accounts will help younger workers but will not solve all the problems of solvency.
They've all but admitted they are just out to rob the country's coffers while they can. Is anybody listening?
