1. For once...
The American people aren't just signing off on what the neo-cons are telling them and instead are actually taking a closer look at their plan. The good news is that the more people look at Bush's social security phase out plan the more they dislike it. Who wants a "cure" which costs three times what the original problem costs and which would slash the amount most workers would recieve?

What's worse is Bush's assumptions are so rosy that if they come true there won't even be much of a funding short fall to begin with. Krugman ferrited out that little gem.

2. The social security plan of the pres doesnt make sense-
If social security is in trouble now,how will it help to divert payments into something else? Maybe that is just too simple for some people, but you cant run a household or a business by making partial payments.
