Get ready for the phony TV commercials backing Bush's Social Security plan:

Anticipating intense opposition from many quarters - including the huge lobbying group for retired people, AARP - administration officials are enlisting support from a wide array of outside groups.

The outside organizations include research groups like the Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute and several new groups, some financed by business groups, with names like the "Alliance for Worker Retirement Security" and "Women for Social Security Choice."

--New York Times

"Alliance for Worker Retirement Security." Yeah, that sound you just heard was a rolling sound, and I believe it came from the general direction of Orwell's grave.
