Good News on Social Security

A new report:
If President Bush's plan for Social Security were in place today, at least 33,000 Mainers would be in poverty and the state would be left to shoulder the burden, according to a new report from the Campaign for America's Future.

And a new poll:
A poll released by the Washington, D.C-based Americans United to Protect Social Security indicated 73 percent of Mainers participating in a recent poll were opposed to the president's plans for privatizing aspects of Social Security. A follow-up question indicated 74 percent of the respondents would be less likely to vote for their Maine senator in the next election if she were to support the president's proposal.
