Reagan and Social Security

April 15, 1985

Richard Nixon lied, cheated and finagled his way through an election race against George McGovern that it was nearly impossible for him to lose, no matter what he did or didn't do.

Reagan, it appears, is trying hard to follow in his predecessor's path, in this instance lying to the electorate with his promise not to touch Social Security payments to connive a few votes he didn't need.

Our age has the terrible habit of believing venal men, and Reagan has demonstrated that he belongs to that filthy company.
