    1981-1983 Social Security Commission: Myths and RealitiesPosted by Bruce Webb | 4/25/2009 04:42:00 PM

    The lede:

    Currently there is a lot of discussion about forming a new bipartisan Entitlements Commission modeled in part on the 'Greenspan Commission' of 1981-82 and partly on the Base ReAlignment Commission (BRAC). The idea is that you get people to agree on 'Crisis', then get a 'bipartisan' group together to present an up or down 'compromise' proposal to Congress. I put 'bipartisan' and 'compromise' in quotes because this idea is being pushed by a combination of Conservative Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats who have predetermined the outcome.
    Le plus ca change, le plus le meme chose.

    With four data tables. Bon appetit
