reckless policies to divert social security monies« Thread Started on Feb 3, 2005, 8:43pm »--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Last night in his State of the Union address, President Bush promised to "build a better world for our children and grandchildren" -- and then outlined a series of policies that would do exactly the opposite.Bush deliberately chose to mislead the American people about his disastrous plan to privatize Social Security. He claimed to oppose borrowing money and cutting benefits, but his plan does both, creating trillions of dollars in new debt and cutting benefits up to 50 percent. He claimed that his plan would make Social Security more solvent, but experts agree that it will do the reverse.The result is a less secure future for our children and grandchildren. And Bush's Social Security privatization scheme is just the tip of the iceberg.Bush's proposal to make his tax cuts permanent will empty the Social Security trust fund, costing $2.4 trillion over the next 10 years. And he is saddling future generations with trillions in debt. Bush's health care proposals will double the cost of traditional health care by shifting the cost of medical bills to patients. Bush wants to extend the unfunded mandates and requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act and may actually propose cutting the budget for the Department of Education. Does this sound like a better future for our children and grandchildren?Democrats will not stand on the sidelines while Bush pushes his disastrous agenda. We will not let Republicans in Congress wash away hope for our future.With your help, we will hold Bush and the Republicans accountable, and we will stop their disastrous agenda dead in its tracks.
