Well, a few of those are probably better described as cases of him giving in to pressure but then trying to spin it as if he'd wanted to (let Rice testify/appoint a 9/11 commission, etc.) all along.

But don't publicize this stuff too loudly. Some folks don't want to believe it happens.

As for SS benefits.....ummm, possible generatable income

In reply to: Re: More damned flip-flopping -- As for SS benefits...

>>>>Neither President Bush (news - web sites) nor Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites) has offered a detailed prescription for bringing sufficient money into the program.


Bush favors giving younger workers the option of putting part of their payroll tax into personal retirement accounts, in return for smaller Social Security benefits, or staying with the Social Security system.


Kerry opposes that plan for partial privatization. He says the way to strengthen Social Security is to "grow the economy, create jobs and increase revenues into the program." >>>>

would be to force our REPRESENTATIVES TO NO LONGER OPT OUT AND MAKE THEM PAY, TOO??????????????????

Shucks, I've been hearing since the 70's SS would be dead

before I got old enough to collect it it.

So why act surprised now? I've suspected I'd never collect even what I paid in over the years since I started to work.

FAQ about Social Security

Q. I'm 35 years old. If nothing is done to improve Social Security, what can I expect to receive in retirement benefits from the program?

A. Unless changes are made, at age 73 your scheduled benefits could be reduced by 27 percent and could continue to be reduced every year thereafter from presently scheduled levels.

Which is why even in the 70's we were being warned not to believe in SS, except for disability perhaps.

Shrug, I've been advised most of my life to regard SS tax as just tax and forget about it like a bad loan.

Of course, when we're young, we think there is forever before we have to plan being old.

Have you noticed Kerry lately?

In reply to: More damned flip-flopping

Sometimes he flip-flops in one sentence. Bush doesn't hold a candle to him.
