New Democrat centrist Erskine Bowles and silver-tongued Republican Alan Simpson have been lobbying for Social Security benefit cuts, talking about protecting the heritage of young people.
They're just lying. Simpson has said he'll have the debate these young people are calling for, if they'll "read the plan." I've read the plan. It renegs on the deal made in 1983, where boomers accepted benefit cuts and payroll tax increases.
And, you know, I'm pretty sure that Simpson will never actually agree to a venue for this debate. After all, it's just one more lie.
