SOCIAL SECURITY NOT IN CRISIS?....It's a small story below the fold in the LA Times, but hey! it's a start:

"Social Security is not in crisis, and the financial challenges facing the system are manageable," said Rep. Robert T. Matsui of Sacramento, the senior Democrat on the House Social Security subcommittee.

....Many Democrats accuse Republicans of intentionally making Social Security's future look bleaker than it is so that they can more easily sell their privatization proposals. The Republican agenda, they say, is more ideological than financial: the promotion of Bush's "ownership society."

Imagine that. Social Security might not be in crisis after all. May this meme spread joyously across the land....
