More Social Security Nonsense

Just a day after Russert's misinformation on life expectancy, MSNBC has done it again. In an article titled "5 myths about Social Security," the same incorrect information is repeated by a different columnist. To wit, seniors are going to need 14 more years of benefits than they did when the program started. Instead-- see my previous post-- it's closer to 5 years.

Naturally, I wrote in to point this out. The contact info, as well as a chance to rate the article, appear at the bottom of the article. Enjoy.
