22. Pelosi, Senior House Democrats Urge End to White House
Using Social Security Administration as Propaganda Tool

Friday, January 21, 2005

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Whip Steny Hoyer and other senior House Democrats today sent a letter to the Social Security Administration urging them to halt the Bush Administration's use of propaganda to push the President's plan to cut Social Security benefits.

"There is a pattern of propaganda by the Bush Administration that must be stopped," Pelosi said. "It has paid a conservative commentator to covertly promote No Child Left Behind, produced fake video news releases designed to look like real news reports, and is using Social Security Administration employees to undermine Social Security. We must probe the disturbing depths of these scandals to determine how such unethical decisions are being made. These underhanded tactics are not worthy of our great democracy. The President's commitment to freedom around the world should extend to the freedom of the American people to live without their tax dollars being used to run a government propaganda machine."
