Model 2

Max points out just how shitty Little Nell can expect to do under what appears to be the Bush plan, though of course we don't really have a plan.

I'm not sure how to square the numbers rattled off by the Post reporters with the CBO predictions. Of course, as long as we don't have an actual plan, but just a bunch of smoke blown up gullible reporters asses, it's hard to discuss the details.

So, perhaps we shouldn't fall into the trap of doing so. The social security "crisis" is about as real as the WMD "crisis," though I suppose when seniors are impoverished we can similarly claim that it was a humanitarian mission.
