The State of the Onion...

FactCheck.org has posted their analysis of the State of the Union.

Well, at least their analysis of what the President said about Social Security.

Don't read it unless you want to know how many times the President contradicted his own plan.

Don't read it unless you want to know that the President's plan doesn't do anything to fix Social Security; it merely redirects money from the Social Security Trust Fund into individual equity market accounts.

Don't read it unless you want to know what's going to happen to the money in those personal accounts based on current plans. "And best of all, the money in the account is yours, and the government can never take it away" Nope, it's not. It just looks like its yours.

It takes a real bullshit artist to make a traditional big-government program look "private."
