Bush hiding behind his mommy's apron as his SocSec plan tanks with the public
Former first lady Barbara Bush listens to her son, President Bush (news – web sites), as he advances his Social Security destruction proposal before a hand-picked audience at the Lake Nona YMCA Family Center in Orlando, Fla., Friday, March 18, 2005. In a state with a large population of retirees, Bush wants to assure seniors that they will continue to receive their regular government checks, while he pushes for a system of private accounts which would enable younger workers to divert a portion of their payroll taxes from Social Security deductions and into stock market investments to bankroll their retirement.
