Democrats and "insurgents"
Two classes of losers, both crushed by the people in an election. The similarities are eerie.
The top Democrat in the Senate on Tuesday predicted that President Bush's plan to revamp social security by diverting taxes into private investment accounts would fail to pass Congress.Mark it on your calendar. On Tuesday, February 1st, Harry Reid single-handedly guaranteed passage of private social security accounts by claiming they could never pass the Senate.
Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid was speaking as Bush prepared to use his State of the Union address on Wednesday to argue for his proposals and then follow up with a five-state tour to campaign for the new investment accounts.
"President Bush should forget about privatizing Social Security," the Nevada Democrat said. "It will not happen. The sooner he comes to that realization, the better off we are."
