Get on the Truth Truck!

BDN photoA seniors group called the Alliance for Retired Americans has been sending a flatbed truck around the country stacked with the signatures of more than a million Americans who oppose Bush's plans to privatize Social Security.

The truck began its tour of New England yesterday with a stop in Bangor with Mike Michaud and then one in Portland with Tom Allen.
"Social Security is a benefit that's always been there," 2nd District Rep. Mike Michaud told a group of about 30 protesters gathered in front of the truck parked outside the federal building. "It's a solid foundation we need in our society, and efforts to privatize it ... are simply wrong, outrageous."
