Courtesy of a reader, I note a New York Times article, quoting Bush, almost in the same breath, as first demanding the extension of his tax cuts and then, in re. his Social Security plan, saying: "When you get elected to office in Washington, D.C., you have an obligation to confront problems, not pass them on to future generations and future Congresses."
Memo to Bush: Here is some straight math for you (I know you hate the fuzzy stuff). The infinite horizon estimated cost of extending your tax cuts is $13 trillion. The infinite horizon Social Security fiscal gap that you claim is so disastrous is $10 trillion.
