  •  The Lockbox vs the Bush Tax Cuts (4+ / 0-)

    The SS surplus paid for the Bush tax cuts.  

    When Al Gore was droning on about the lockbox, Dubya was talking about returning the surplus to the wealthiest Americans.

    We returned the money and lo' Social Security is broke!  That's not a coincidence.  Nor was it an accident.

    This is the culmination of 30 years of the Republican drown-it-in-the-bathtub strategy.
