Robert Samuelson Really Hates Social Security

Seriously. Robert Samuelson really hates Social Security. Dean Baker already covered this on Beat the Press, but the amount of dishonesty in Samuelson's piece is mind-boggling. Paul Krugman and Jared Bernstein also picked up on it here and here. Samuelson pulls out every trick in the book to make Social Security look terrible, even the old "What would FDR think?" fallacy. Perhaps we should all send The Washington Post's Fact Checker, Glenn Kessler, links to Samuelson's column and the Beat the Press response with the note "Please read."
