    two things of note:
    1. the bush administration continues to spend w/o paying for it
    2. a principle doesn't count as a pre-judgement

    Perhaps Mr. Bush should ask Mr. Greenspan what he thinks considering it was him who made the choice to raise them previously under Reagan's Administration (when Reagan was making his tax-cuts).

    Considering how highly regarded Reagan is by many Conservatives, and the obvious wisdom of Greenspan's then-contested move in hindsight, I would think the Administration would like to keep the option on the table.

    Unless, of course, this isn't about "fixing" SS at all...

    You mean in the same way NCLB is designed to 'fix' the Department of Education?

    Or in the same way a mobster says 'We sure fixed him'?

    Let's see, massively increase the deficit and debt? That ought to help the dollar rebound!
