on This Week hosted by George Stephanopoulos, Sen Harry Reid talked about Social Security:

Reid: Social Security is not in crisis!

George: So you think the president is manufacturing these crises?


Reid: Yes, just like he's manufacturing crises about judges. He goes all over America saying democrats have held up my judges. I don't know what kind of glasses he's looking through.

It's good to see Reid get tough on these issues. The word crisis means: A crucial or decisive point or situation; a turning point an impending abrupt or decisive change. That would mean to me that if what they are sayimg Social Security would be bankrupt in the coming months. It's just another attempt by the president and others in his administration to try and paint the issue with fear so they can destroy another entitlement program from the New Deal that all republicans opposed to begin with.

Does Bill Frist need a heart transplant?

Frist appeared on This Week as well and talked about Social Security reform:

Frist: It is in crisis. It's a little bit like medicine when a patient walks through the doors. I see the patient. I look at the tests and I look at the study and I know he needs a heart transplant.


What about the tears and aids question Bill? It scary to hear his analogy of what he thinks is wrong with Social Security, but it says a lot. When you transplant an organ like the heart, you are cutting it out first.
