Jane Hamsher vs. Social Security Phaseout

Jane Hamsher explains the Social Security Phaseout provision of the Obama-Republican tax deal in this PBS Newshour segment from 12/06/2010. Jane's explanation starts around 3:35 on the video. I like it that Jane uses "Catfood Commission", which Gwen Eifel apparently had never encountered before, to describe Obama's anti-Social Security Deficit Commission.



Jane's counterpart in that discussion is someone from the anti-Social Security Third Way group.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
