Bush asks middle class to take it in the ass.

Once again, President Bush has taken the bold and innovative step of jamming a very large, very pointy policy proposal directly into the rectum of America's middle class. Embracing his role as Fabricator in Chief, the President proposed a plan last night to cut Social Security benefits for everybody but the working poor, and to raise their benefits ever so slightly in return. Painting this proposal as just another step towards a progressive social policy, the President presented this proposal as a means to "fix" Social Security. Of course, what he really did was provide us with further proof that he's out to destroy the middle class as we know it. I'll point you to this post from Talking Points Memo to put that comment in perspective.
