Club for Growth on the Soc. Sec. Trustees Report

Their newswire release leads with:

The 2005 Social Security Trustees Report was issued today, which indicated that the program’s financial condition is worse than previously expected.

Club for Growth’s David Hogberg notes:

Thus, it must have come as a surprise, if not a disappointment, when the 2005 report was released yesterday and it looked remarkably like the report from the previous year.

While some of what David said might seem petty, his main message is exactly right – even if it contradicts what the Club for Growth said. Alas, much of our mainstream press seems to be agreeing with the dishonest spin from the Club for Growth as opposed to the sensible statement from David.
