While most liberal politicos and journalists have dealt with the Social Security debate by sticking their fingers in their ears and screaming, “Bush is wrong!” (real productive, guys) I was thrilled to see this opinion piece by Michael Kinsley in the LA Times (a liberal paper) actually discuss the issues.

I obviously don’t agree with everything Kinsley says, but I applaud the fact that he recognizes reality—Social Security will fail without drastic reforms, and President Bush’s plan is really not such a bad place to start from on making it solvent again.
