The Dark Wraith speaks on the Repug Social Security sham

Surf over to Big Brass Blog to read another of The Dark Wraith‘s excellent policy pieces, “First Impugn Honor; All Else Will Then Perish.” This time he gives the Bush Admin a whipping for their completely unethical (and illogical) reasoning behind its plan to unravel Social Security.

To pose that the Social Security system must somehow be fundamentally redesigned because of the normal course by which deficit-riddled, tax-averse Administrations generate funds is to demand that the lender be punished for the irresponsibility of the borrower. It does not occur to Mr. Cheney and Mr. Bush that their constant refrain of low taxes has put the government in the position of being forced to constantly refinance debt with further debt. It occurs to them only to evicerate a social insurance program that is ideologically at odds with their vision of the way the federal government should interact with its citizens.
