CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This book illuminates the politics and policy of the current struggle over
Social Security in light of the program's compelling history and ingenious
structure. After a brief introduction describing the dramatic response of the
Social Security Administration to the 9/11 terrorist attack, the book recounts
Social Security???s lively history. Although President Bush has tried to
convince Americans that Social Security is designed for the last century and
unworkable for an aging population, readers will see that the President's
assault is just another battle in a longstanding ideological war. Prescott
Bush, the current President???s grandfather, remarked of FDR, "The only man I
truly hated lies buried in Hyde Park." The book traces the continuous thread
leading from Prescott Bush and his contemporaries to George W. Bush and others
who want to undo Social Security. The book concludes with policy
recommendations which eliminate Social Security's deficit in a manner
consistent with the program's philosophy and structure.
