We'll all lose

Tuesday, March 8, 2005

Dear Editor,

President Bush is busy trying to sell his Social Security privatization scheme. He is trying to scare us with a made-up crisis, urging us to hurry, "this is our last chance."

This classic high-pressure sales: make up a crisis, proclaim an emergency and say "this is your last chance to buy, hurry."

Be wary. Take a second look. This is deception.

Bush talks like we'll all be winners with his privatized Social Security. There have to be losers in order to have winners, many more losers than winners. With Bush's privatized Social Security we will all lose.

Call your local Republican representative and ask them why they want to destroy Social Security.
