Spin Doctor, Spin!

I just got my annual "this is how much you paid in Social Security" letter and I was suprised to read a lot of partisan rhetoric on the cover letter about how we must change social security NOW and blah blah blah.

This is one of the greatest spins of the currenty administration and the Republicans as a whole recently. Unlike the medicare & socialized medicine issue, which is admitedly complex, the only problem with social security's future is that we have to fund it. If baby boomers put too much burden on it, how bout siphoning off some of that exobitant defense budget? Or better yet, get rid of some of the Barneys at the airport standing around under the guise of Homeland Security guards. The program is fine as is, just needs different funding. Make it so. Period. Despite the rhetoric saying otherwise, solving the SS woes ain't rocket science.
