I'm sure you've been following all the twists and turns in the Social Security
privatization personalization modernization transmogrification debate - Josh Marshall has certainly been a tireless resource. It seems we've reached a critical juncture:
Lawmakers said a turning point came Friday when House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.), who has been leery of taking on Social Security, argued that the caucus had a "moral obligation" to do so.
The point here is just a bit of framing. DeLay, when people have heard of him, isn't very popular. Neither (so far, at least) is Social Security transmogrification, but a lot of people have heard of it. That's two bad tastes that taste bad together, which sounds like a good thing from my perspective. We'll see if it catches on at all.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 01, 2005 to National news | TrackBack
