Hey, Not Bad

Media Whores Online points us to a White House Document on Social Security “reform” that makes it clear they mean PRIVATE accounts — yes, the dreaded “privatization” word that George “I don’t use polls” Bush says they never used, now that polls show the public doesn’t like it.

Anyway, in the document is a chart showing that Social Security offers a 1.7% “rate of return.” Compared to what banks are offering these days, that’s not too bad! (Hasn’t anyone ever told these wizards that return = risk.)
