Our Newest Op Ed-By Warner Todd Huston
- By Warner Todd Huston
The President's detractors on Social Security reform are claiming that the issue is already dead. But how could that possibly be a reasoned determination of the issue? There hasn't really even been any debate about the issue as of yet. All we have been treated to thus far is out of school polemics.
President Bush was reelected In November, last. His newest term began on January, last. That was five months and three months ago respectively. The new legislative session has barely begun. When have we yet had the time to discuss in the halls of Congress this incredibly culturally touchy and complicated issue? When, exactly, has Congress discussed the issue that Bush made one of the central goals in his State of the Union speech of only 32 days ago, an idea for which he has only just begun to campaign for amongst the US people?
Can we legitimately claim that this issue is failed after so little time between Bush's formal announcement of his intent to pursue the program and now, barely a single month later? It certainly seems preposterous to make such an illogical assumption...........
