    It's good to know that those other venues don't involve the ears of lawmakers who support Bush's agenda...I'm glad to hear that the President is engaged in group-think instead of a thoughtful consideration of the concerns and opposition of millions of Americans.

    Whatever happened to great public debate and civic engagement? It is a sad day when our government isn't even engaged enough to entertain the comments and concerns of informed citizens.

    Ah...

    You'll get the appropriate # of $ but they'll be worth less than dirt. Today's retirees (those who can still vote Republican in the next cycle) will get what they've been promised. The rest of us will have to do something else like a 90%@30 Years plan. Hmm... I guess that means we'll all have to work for Law Enforcement, Fire Departments or other select Unionized Gvt. careers.
