Bush Gets B+ for Honesty, Even Courage, on Social Security

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.
