Why Are We Paying For Bush To Push His Dismantling Plan On Us? 

Cost of Social Security Drive Cited (washingtonpost.com)

This Washington Post story reflects an issue I've been mulling over lately. Why are taxpayers funding Bush's Social Security road show (aka "Bamboozlepalooza")?

What's different about Bush's efforts is the overwhelming lack of support of his proposal (remember he says he doesn't have a plan) by citizens of this country. Bill Clinton's attempt to address health insurance resulted from voters desire that something be done.

Americans want Congress to fix the solvency problem with Social Security, but there is demonstrated lack of interest in doing anything along the lines of the President's private accounts right now.

We should not be paying for Bush to push his poison pill on us.
