Via The Stakeholder, I see Pelosi and Waxman have a report on the politicized of the Social Security Administration.
* "The Future of Social Security" booklet - which used to begin: "Will Social Security be there for you? Absolutely" - now begins: "Social Security must change."
* Agency press releases on the solvency of Social Security have grown more dire even as the projections of the program's long-term solvency have improved.
* Agency presentations have eliminated statements that assure beneficiaries that "there is no immediate financial crisis."
* The annual Social Security statement sent to Americans has dropped the assurance that Social Security will "be there when you retire" and no longer encourages Americans to think of Social Security as a "foundation on which to build your financial future."
