There is no crisis dot com
The Blog Political Action Committee has launched a major online offensive exposing the manufactured Social Security "crisis".

BlogPAC, a collection of Democratic bloggers and blog readers, is joining the battle, with an online media campaign that refers to the attacks against Social Security's solvency as "fraud".

"Fact is, There Is No Crisis," said Markos Moulitsas. "And there is no projected crisis anytime in the near future. Or far future."

"We want to provide tools for citizens to engage in the political process on this critical issue," said Matt Stoller "President Bush's consistently fraudulent claims need to be rebutted by the American people, and that's what's going to happen with thereisnocrisis.com."

Chris Bowers promised bloggers would, "fight Bush's attempt to destroy the most successful program in the history of the United States."

The new website -- www.ThereIsNoCrisis.com -- gives "the netroots the tools necessary to protect the integrity of Social Security," according to Tim Tagaris. "The blogosphere has officially jumped into the mix."

1. Great topic
I notice Bush Jr. was on the radio today still selling the 75 year old lie that Social Security is about to collapse.

4. From my vantage point;
Lol, a fat, balding old man, that the only ones trying to 'reform Social Security' are either so rich that Social Security would sassist them in no way or the freepers who seem to think that Social Security is just another communist plot and needs to be abolished.
