ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

I guess we should all just give up and let Social Security crash and take down our country's economy with it.

I mean, Harry says it's dead, so what's the point?

President Bush's plan to partially privatize Social Security is dead, Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada said in a visit to Pittsburgh yesterday.

Reid along with Sen. Byron Dorgan of North Dakota, chairman of the Senate's Democratic Policy Committee, and Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, came to Coraopolis for a town meeting about Social Security.

Afterward, Reid told the Post-Gazette editorial board that he had enough votes in the Senate to block President Bush's proposal to introduce private savings accounts as an alternative to the existing federal retirement plan. "It's dead," Reid said. "The president just hasn't acknowledged it yet."
In related news, Harry Reid's Democratic Party has no future, they just haven't acknowledged it yet.

Brian adds: To paraphrase the movie Top Gun, directed at Bush and the RNC, "It's time to do some of that politickin shit..."
