Cegelis told Berkowitz, "understand I am a systems analyst ...…So the first thing I want to do is to make sure we have all of the facts on the table, find out exactly where we are because I am not feeling right now—I have been reading as much as I can and I don’t feel like I have a good handle on it and then [set-up] I think a bi-partisan commission that would do that fact gathering—and then come up with the recommendations."
What ever happened to fighting liberals and progressives? It's "which side are you on!" and if you have to stop and flow chart it you're on the wrong side. Letting workers divert a regressive FICA tax into a fund they own is progressive. Let the green eye shade folks flow chart the details. Bush's "ownership" society is progressive, liberal, and worth fighting for.
