You Said It

A letter in the TU today attacks democrats for using scare tactics to derail Bush's proposal to privatize (or as Republicans would say, "personalize") social security. The article also has one of the best quotes on this goals of Bush's plan I've seen.

"Democrats accuse President Bush of actually wanting not to fix Social Security but to destroy it, and throw seniors into poverty. As if Republicans are soulless monsters who actually desire that". Is soulless one word or two? Should that be hypenated? I'm going to have to check that out because I think its a handy word to have around when discussing the Bush government.

Perhaps the writer missed the Republicans at the Rick Santorum rally that were chanting "hey hey, ho ho, Social Security has got to go?". You can watch the video it it here. Let's do the math. Social Security Gone = Seniors in Poverty.
