"The People's Pension: The Struggle to Defend Social Security Since Reagan" Eric Laursen talks about the debate over Social Security since the early 1980s and argues that in order to preserve the decades old support system it may be necessary to remove it from the control of the federal government. Hosted by Busboys and Poets in Washington, DC. Eric Laursen, an independent journalist, is the co-founder and former managing editor of Plan Sponsor, a magazine that focuses on pension funds. He is the co-author of "Understanding the Crash." Eisenhower and Nixon refused to touch the third-rail of social security benefits. Bush crashed and burned in his 2005 attempt to privatize social security. Campaign for America's Future is a vital resource in the struggle to maintain social security that keeps tens of millions from poverty.to watch Eric Laursen on www.booktv.org, 57 min, click on http://www.booktv.org/Watch/13752/The+Peoples+Pension+The+Struggle+to+Defend+Social+Security+Since+Reagan.aspx

Nothing, apparently, so why mention them in your shill to privatize social security?

Just to fool people?

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
