Republican and Social Security

Rep. Bill Thomas, R-Calif. and Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, will no doubt be asked to leave the Republican party at some point in the near future. Both went on TV yesterday and said Bush is wrong about Social Security. Are they crazy? Don't they know that those who speak out in opposition to the President will not be tolerated. Don't they know Bush won the election so he is always right?

The story appeared in the
Moonie Times

"On NBC's "Meet the Press," Thomas said he wants to look at new ways of financing Social Security and said one possibility is a value-added tax -- a consumption tax added at each stage in the production of goods and services"

"Snowe said on CNN's "Inside Politics Sunday" she is not convinced a Social Security crisis has arrived, saying there are "various scenarios and interpretations about that urgency."
