Bush’s Honesty: The Real Social Security Crisis – Krugman’s NYT Series Continues

Paul Krugman’s New York Times series on Social Security continues in today's paper (go to the website):

It's the standard Bush administration tactic: invent a fake crisis to bully people into doing what you want. "For the first time in six decades," the memo says, "the Social Security battle is one we can win." One thing I haven't seen pointed out, however, is the extent to which the White House expects the public and the media to believe two contradictory things.

Krugman's series is a must read for anyone tracking the falsehoods being shoveled by the Bush administration on Social Security.
