Corzine’s Demagoguery On Social Security
While visiting Ohio today, President Bush met with state and local public employees who function outside of Social Security and have the option of investing in personal accounts.Doesn’t it make you wonder why Jon Corzine is fighting so hard to keep private sector workers from the retirement savings ownership and choice enjoyed by 5 million public employees? Senator Corzine’s hysterical and misleading anti Social Security choice campaign is shameful - even more so, as he previously favored investing a portion of Social Security funds in the private sector.
Ninety seven percent of Ohio’s 1,000,000 public employees and five million nationwide, exist outside the current Social Security system and can invest in personal accounts.
Corzine said he has been "consistent in trying to work for the state" on a variety of issues by "taking a thoughtful approach" and "not trying to demagogue things". How can he make a statement like that with a straight face and then make statements like this, this and this. His press releases are so ludicrous, it’s not worth wasting our time commenting further. Read them, you’ll see what we mean.
