  •  Thanks, Bruce, for the list of staffers. I've (0+ / 0-)

    bookmarked them.

    I have gone back over my transcript, and see that the Moderator, Lisa Mensah, describes them (collectively) as:

    "This team was all involved with the Social Security Greenspan Commission."

    But later describes them individually in keeping with your understanding of their roles.  [IOW, Reno as a Commission Staffer, and the other two, Gregory and Primus, as staffers working with the Commission.]

    So I stand corrected.  Thanks for pointing this out.

    Maybe I'll stick with posting clips of the panel, in the future.  ;-)

      even though not a Commissioner. All involved understood that the end game was in Congress in the hands of the Old Bulls like Rostenkowski and Pickle. As such I am sure there was a LOT of back and forth at the staff level. - SocSec.Defender at - founder DK Social Security Defenders group - (hmm is there a theme emerging here?)
