Bush Confused About Social Security

According the TalkingPoints, President Bush has been down this road before. Running for Congress in 1978, George W. Bush predicted social security would be bankrupt within a decade. He also claimed the system should give people the opportunity to invest money in the way they feel is best.

The Texas Observer ran a story in 1999 recounting similar tales from the same failed Congressional run.

Bush criticized energy policy, federal land use policy, subsidized housing, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration ("a misuse of power," he said), and he warned that Social Security would go bust in ten years unless people were given a chance to invest the money themselves.
The President of the United States has been lying for two and a half decades. Social security is not going to go bankrupt, it is, rather, one of the most vital social programs in the US.

He didn't fool the people of Texas twenty-seven years ago, don't let him fool you now. Find out what you can do to save social security.
