Social Security Administration Analyst Susan Bussman gave members of the National Conference of State Legislatures' Labor and Workforce Development Committee a low-key but dramatic warning yesterday afternoon: President Bush has somewhat revised his Social Security "reform" plan, has the strong support of Social Security Subcommittee Chair Jim McCrery (R-Louisiana), and plans to bring it up for consideration again in 2007.
I was at the meeting representing the Pennsylvania legislature in the Committee's deliberations. Although my subsequent internet search revealed that this is a known fact among those who closely follow this issue (see a thorough analysis of the politics of 2007 Social Security schemes at, it is a fact that is too new to be widely known.)
