  •  Three words: Social Security Privatization (none)
    Remember, Bush tried to get uncounted dollars from Social Security into the stock market. I guess we know where that money was supposed to go.

    We also know who will be the primary beneficiaries of Bush's SOTU health care privatization: the Congressional staffers being paid under the table for leaking terms of the proposed programs and the hedge funds that pay them.

    Here's Bush's latest speech on the economy. Time to quote it back to McClellan, Frist, and DeLay:

    "You'll be pleased to hear that I'm audited every year. (Laughter.) One way or the other. More than happy to put out my income tax returns for my friends in the press to scrutinize. (Laughter.) I see them nodding -- yes, they love -- (laughter.) As it should be, by the way, for people in public office. Those of us in public office have the high responsibility to uphold the integrity of the process. And people ought to be held to high standards. In Washington, D.C. there needs to be high standards for conduct of public officials. (Applause.)"
