Bush: Political Courage to Grab Third Rail

From the New Hampshire Portsmouth Herald Editorial: Bush shows political courage in putting Social Security on table: "As we all face a new era of escalating Social Security costs, and a declining ratio of workers to retirees, it is now prudent to re-evaluate the real numbers, analyze these facts, and adapt Social Security to our changing times. Just as Social Security provides a financial shield for millions of Americans today, we must also be mindful of its solvency for future generations.

Bush's plan is bold. Whether you agree or disagree, he deserves credit for taking the political risk and the political heat for putting Social Security on the table and challenging our elected officials and the American public to engage in this national debate. "
