social (security) drinking

cocktail party debate briefing book: entry #1

We need to know what to say when people bring up Social Security, particularly in business or family situations where we don't want to be confrontational. As an ongoing public service, Night Light will be offering suggested responses or conversational gambits to be used whenever the topic comes up. Here suggestion #1:

"Don't you think it's funny that the guy who ran up the biggest deficits in history is so worried about the one government program that isn't going to have any funding problems for forty years?"

If you feel it's necessary, you can then add, "Just asking."
