Social Security, Iraq and Mushroom Clouds
By Rob Gross
Ok, let's see. President Bush paid off the big pharmaceutical companies by making it illegal for Medicare to negotiate lower prices for prescription drugs even though this would prove costly to 40 million seniors and disabled Americans. He rewarded big energy companies by undermining the Clean Air Act even though this would endanger millions of Americans who live near certain polluting power plants. And, of course, the biggest boon of all went to Halliburton and other oil and defense industry giants after talk of mushroom clouds and fictitious sales of uranium rallied the nation behind an unnecessary war in Iraq.
who will be rewarded next? Why not Wall Street and the big brokerage
firms? By claiming that Social Security is in trouble even though the
facts say otherwise (remember Iraq and mushroom clouds) the Bush administration
can proceed with its plans for privatization. They'll keep repeating
the message, "Social Security is in trouble…Social Security is in trouble"
until it sticks. They'll totally use the Iraq model. Key to their strategy
will be to get the media behind the cause. Get ready for an all out
TV and radio ad blitz telling us that "Social Security is in trouble."
Of course, Fox News will back them no matter what they say. And they
can probably pay off some influential commentators, a la Armstrong Williams.
