Sen. Dorgan (ND): "The president is certainly going to use his megaphone"
Bush, Democrats focus on Social Security

http://www.cnn.com/2005/ALLPOLITICS/01/28/social.securi...

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush's advisers have settled on a proposal for structuring the personal accounts they hope to create in Social Security, while on Capitol Hill, Senate Democrats were launching an effort to defeat the plan altogether.

Among those testifying before the panel were a pair of workers from the Social Security Administration complaining that the employees are being used for political purposes to sell the Bush plan to the public.

"The president is certainly going to use his megaphone to convince people this is a crisis, and he's dead wrong on that," said Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-North Dakota, chairman of the Democratic Policy Committee, which works to promote party policies on the Senate floor and is sponsoring Friday's session. "We have to make the case that he's wrong," Dorgan said.

Also Friday, Bush was speaking to congressional Republicans at a retreat outside of Washington on Social Security and other issues.



One more Senator to add to your "thank you note" list.

1. He really is a great man.
Extremely pleasant to deal with and has a great head on his shoulders. In my dealings, he'll bend over backwards for his constituents.
