Social (in)Security calculator.

I went over to the calculator and discovered that Bush's Social Security plan would be a 25% cut in my annual benefits. I was shocked and awed. Perhaps if I really really believed in "more responsibility and personal control" rather than my future security, I might want to take the cut to get closer to my utopia.

I haven't looked at the calculator's assumptions or done any math myself, so I can't speak to its accuracy. Perhaps it's propaganda. In any case, I already believe that there is no crisis, and after all that about McCarthy, I think I've challenged enough of my assumptions this week.
