Texas Chainsaw Dynasty?• by Bob Patterson
Is America being set up for the return of the Bush Dynasty? Has the legacy of Murrow's Boys morphed into a shameless spectacle of his network's modern on air talent kowtowing to the Republican Party in the form of stories about a political triumph that is being spun as a "compromise"?
In the early morning hours on Thursday, KCBS news radio in San Francisco reported that the payroll tax cut had been extended because the Republicans folded on their insistence that it be balanced by corresponding budget cuts.
Isn't the "payroll tax cut" code talk for cutting back on workers' contributions to the Social Security Trust fund? Hasn't destroying the Social Security program been the top Republican political goal since the day FDR signed it into law?
