85% Say “Don’t Cut Social Security”

Our thanks to Beaver County PDA for sending along this article.  Their Congressman, like most Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats, wants to cut the program.  As always, to understand the thinking of those people, look for the money.  Privatizing Social Security would be good for the retirement insurance industry and the Wall Street establishment that owns it.  There is no other reason to privatize.

A Republican Congressman has called for a blue-ribbon commission to study how the war is going and what we can do to find more success.  The direction the war and American opinion is running is contrary to the Military-Industrial Complex’s gospel, contrary to what Andrew Bacevich calls “Washington Rules.”
