Giving Your Social Security Checks to Rich Farmers
That President Bush weaseled out on his promise to cut farm pork does not surprise me in the least. But it does show that this White House was never serious about giving you your money back or protecting your Social Security benefits.
Update: Brad Plumer notes that it might indeed be the time to be pro-farm subsidy.
Update 2: The GOP leadership says it wants to focus on the long-term solvency of the Social Security system. I wish they’d also work on the long-term solvency of the General Fund. Cutting taxes and keeping farm pork high is not a good start.
