Social Security 'Reform' or 'Scam'?

RECEIVED Fri., Dec. 17, 2004

Editor,
   It's completely transparent, yet you can see it coming from a mile away. The sales job is already starting for President-elect Bush's next big rip-off.
   Right now, more than 99% of Social Security's revenues go toward benefits, and less than 1% for overhead.
   So when you hear Bush's Social Security "reform" salesmen begin their pitch, listen closely to the "management fees" they're asking for their friends to be paid. If they add up to 1% or less, you'll know the whole world was wrong about Bush being a liar and a thief.
   Like that's gonna happen.
