Media whores oh-so-anxious to please Bush on Social Security 

Kevin Drum on CBS.

Turns out CBS showed what looked to be a man in the street who was in actuality a Heritage Foundation operative. Cowardly Broadcasting System indeed...

And a nice quote, also from Kevin Druma, on the Chilean experience with Social Security:

The World Bank found that half of the pension contributions of the average Chilean worker who retired in 2000 went to management fees. The brokerage firm CB Capitales...found that the average worker would have done better simply by placing their pension fund contributions in a passbook savings account.

Wow. I wonder which party the people who collect those management fees are from? Looting! After lying and lawbreaking, it's what Republicans do best!
