Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

The Demos Deanspeak on Social Security

George Will applauds Bush’s use of Hamilton for Hamiltonian ends (as opposed to the Progressives motto of using Hamiltonian means for Jeffersonian ends) in trying to restructure Social Security and, in doing so, he beats up on Harry Reid especially (but also slaps at other Democrats). He says that Teddy Roosevelt’s designation of John Tyler as "politician of monumental littleness" applies exactly to Reid. Bush is not playing roulette, Reid to the contrary notwithstanding, with Social Security. Will explains.
