No Wonder There's a Friggin' Deficit ...

Salon reports that our tax dollars are funding the Bush administration's latest effort to win support for its nefarious Social Security destruction program. Headqarters is a new "war room" in the Treasury Department.
Here's the lead to the story:
March 5, 2005 WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new Social Security war room
inside the Treasury Department is pumping out information to sell President
Bush's plan, much like any political campaign might do. It's part of a
coordinated effort by the Bush administration.
The internal, taxpayer-funded
campaigning is backed up by television advertisements, grass-roots organizing
and lobbying from business and other groups that support the Bush plan.
president's opponents are organized too, though they do not enjoy the resources
of the White House or Treasury to sell their message.

This is simply too much to tolerate. Not only do those of us on the left have to battle this plan, we have to pay for our opponents' ammunition!!!
And you know what? I don't care if Clinton did the same thing. It's wrong and it needs to stop! NOW!!!
