RE: Why all the lying about Social Security?
Monyihan headed the panel. They started it under Bush, but the bills were presented under Clinton. There were three plans to choose from, Breaux, who wanted private accounts, Monyihan's swhich I believe used "means testing" and private accounts, and the one we have today, which Clinton supported. It passed due to Clinton's support.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
