Selling Social Security

The republican party has recently released a 103 page document telling fellow republicans how to sell the concept of Social Security Reform. The report includes tips on how to give statistics that mislead the audiance without lieing. They give talking points, sample speeches, and tips on how to make the issue seem urgant. I skimmed it and it’s pretty screwed up.

  1. Hey Chris, I like what you do here. I agree with a lot of what you have to say.

  2. I looked at the doc you had linked to and skimmed it, but didn’t find anything that was “pretty screwed up.” I even went to the parts that talked about how to sell the idea to the little people. It all seemed pretty common sense and the majority of it was what Bush and his administration had already said in speeches. What parts did you find “screwed up” and why? Also, where did the document come from (i.e. what source, not who it is reported to have come from)? After the various forgery scandals, I tend to be a little wary of leaked documents. Cheers.

  3. It’s kind of important to state the source of any documents you’d like to share with your readers.

    Why do you believe it is pretty screwed up? Is it the manner this information is being communicated, or is it the content that you disagree with?
