Once again Dems can't look truth in the eye....

The dems are hell bent on not letting Pres. Bush reform Social Security and claim it is FDR's sacred cow that must not be touched. But look what FDR himself said about SS.


1-17-1935


In the important field of security for our old people, it seems necessary to adopt three principles: First, noncontributory old-age pensions for those who are now too old to build up their own insurance. It is, of course, clear that for perhaps 30 years to come funds will have to be provided by the States and the Federal Government to meet these pensions. Second, compulsory contributory annuities which in time will establish a self-supporting system for those now young and for future generations. Third, voluntary contributory annuities by which individual initiative can increase the annual amounts received in old age. It is proposed that the Federal Government assume one-half of the cost of the old-age pension plan, which ought ultimately to be supplanted by self-supporting annuity plans.

Oh, and check out this post for some choice quotes from dems in the recent past saying they APPROVE private accounts. Of course this was BEFORE Pres. bush was elected.

1998 & 99 OK to put money in private to solve Soc Sec crisis

But of course the dems ARE NOT playing politics with SS.....
