GOP attacks AARP

I know what would be a great idea - let's attack and demonize an organization made up of 35 million people over the age of 50.

Republicans attacked the AARP as well as congressional Democrats on Wednesday as they struggled to build momentum behind President Bush's call for personal investment accounts under Social Security.

The AARP, which claims 35 million members age 50 and over, is "against a solution that hasn't been written yet," said House Majority Leader Tom DeLay after a closed-door meeting with the GOP rank and file.

Thanks, we've heard enough about it - we don't WANT it to be written. That's the whole point.

DeLay and Speaker Dennis Hastert also criticized congressional Democrats, who are virtually united in opposition to Bush's plans. "The party of no," Hastert called them.

That;s right - "NO." No, you can't raid Social Security. No, you can't gut one of the most popular programs in American History. No, you can't run up two trillion dollars in debt and make everyone's future insecure at the same time.

NO. N-O. You don't get your own way all the time.

Live with it, you whining babies.
