In a Toledo Blade Editorial:
"NOW that President Bush has declared that the Social Security Trust Fund amounts to a stack of 'worthless IOUs' in a government filing cabinet in West Virginia, what will he do next?
How about a press conference in front of the Treasury Building next to the White House, where Mr. Bush could dramatize the fact that the folding money Americans spend every day is just a collection of 'worthless pieces of paper.'
The lengths this President will go to confuse and mislead the public never cease to amaze. That was proven once again by his dog-and-pony exposition on Social Security reform the other day in Parkersburg, W.Va."
