Essence of a Politican
The Washington Post ran a story
today regarding the Republican detractors to President Bush's plan to restructure Social Security. I found the following quote, which dumbfounded me, if only for its candor:
"Why stir up a political hornet's nest . . . when there is no urgency?" said Rep. Rob Simmons (Conn.), who represents a competitive district. "When does the program go belly up? 2042. I will be dead by then."
That quotation sums up why it is too early
to jump into politics.
