Quick, Half-Price Fix for Social Security

President Bush wants to "borrow" $2 trillion...yes, destroy and remake the venerable social security system, which was brilliantly created by FDR and for six decades, has successfully aided American families. Sort of the way he has destroyed Iraq, and now Halliburton gets to rebuild it. Same concept.

Here's an idea........just use half that sum....$1 "save" the existing social security system. One-third would easily do the deed. Probably even one-fourth.

Oh wait. Then Business Friends of George wouldn't get their $2 trillion return-on-investment (ROI, in business school lingo) payback for reelecting he and Cheney for four more years of business-friendly policies.

Silly me. I thought this was about helping families.
