On Social Security, Liberals Seek Censorship by Unemployment

Project 21 Fellow Deneen Moore is noting that efforts by the liberal National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare and its allies to block President Bush's appointment of Andrew Biggs as deputy commissioner of the Social Security Administration is an attempt at censorship through unemployment.

Moore says, "All ideas to rescue and revitalize Social Security should be on the table," recommending that ideas be eliminated only because they have been found to lack merit, "not because their advocates were denied employment."

Once almost gets the impression the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, which is headed by a former Democrat Member of Congress, is afraid of a fair debate.
