Those pushing for cuts in Social Security and the other big items on the right’s agenda can get the basic facts about Social Security, the budget, and the economy wrong over and over again and it doesn’t in any way affect their standing in the public debate on these issues. Now, in addition to getting the facts wrong about cutting Social Security benefits, Sylvester Scheiber in a Progressive Policy Institute brief has referred to CEPR as "a research arm of the AFL-CIO," presumably because we promote policies that advance the interests of ordinary workers but despite the fact that the CEPR site states that we accept no funding from "corporations, unions, or foreign governments." Dean Baker has the full takedown of the PPI brief here.
