More Bush Social Security Hypocrisy

Today's Times brings the news that the Department of Labor is trying to silence labor unions that are seeking to defend their members' pensions and protest the Bush administration's radical plan to privatize Social Security and impose deep benefit cuts on middle class working families.
In a letter on Tuesday to the A.F.L.-C.I.O., the Department of Labor said it was
"very concerned" that pension plans might be spending workers' money to
"advocate a particular result in the current Social Security debate."

You know what? I'm very concerned that the Social Security Administration is spending my money to advocate a particular result result in the Social Security debate.

you know what? remind me once we get power back that we need to change those ERISA laws, cause if working people were allowed to use their capital like say, everyone else, Bush II would never have happened. And union density would be like 30 still. Actually, if they had let Lewis invest those mineworker pensions the way he wanted, we'd probably OWN the whole country by now.
