Bush Propaganda on Social Security Just when I don't think it is possible, he does it again. Our President has sunk to another low. In order to attempt to prop-up support for his failing privatization plan of Social Security, Bush has attempted to pull off a real doozy. Read and listen to this: NPR This is nothing but pure propaganda. This grandstanding event at West Virginia (in front of reporters and cameras) was made for one reason and one reason alone --> to instill fear of the current Social Security System on an unsuspecting American public. What a load of BS ... The Social Security "IOU's" are treasury notes ... much the same as a common US Savings Bond. They are backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government. No investment is safer ... anywhere. Investing in treasury notes has made the Trust Fund much more solvent with hundreds of millions of dollars in accrued interest over the years. I find these tactics disgusting ... but, considering the "source", I am really not surprised.
