Bernie Sanders To The Rescue Again

Filed under: 25% solution, New Priorities — Tags: , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 7:19 am

Bernie Sanders added a line to last year’s defense appropriations bill that required the Pentagon to list contractors convicted of fraud and barred from future defense work.  The report is out, and many “barred” contractors are still doing DoD work.  Worth a read, especially now that we’re so concerned about military spending.

Letters About Social Security

Filed under: Social Security — Tags: , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 7:20 am

We often find that some of the best “op-ed” pieces in The Times are letters to the editor.  These were published August 23 and make some excellent points.  Our favorite senator, Bernie Sanders, says all we have to do is seriously raise the payroll cap and we can make Social Security safe for at least 75 years.  Is anybody listening?
