No Crisis

If you look a the sidebar on the left, at the very top, you will see a cute little baby and the words "There Is No Crisis."

The Government Accounting Office has gone on record as agreeing with that statement.

Social Security "does not face an immediate crisis," the head of the Government Accountability Office said Wednesday, but it does face a long-term financing problem "and it would be prudent to address it sooner rather than later."

David M. Walker, who heads the nonpartisan Office of Comptroller General, also criticized President Bush for undertaking an aggressive two-month tour to try to sell his plan for allowing younger workers to divert a portion of their Social Security payroll taxes into private investment accounts. Walker suggested that Bush and members of Congress focus on improving financing for the program, which would not be significantly affected by establishment of personal accounts.

Does this make it OFFICIAL that Bush uses scare tactics and bullshits?
