    how Reagan & the gop fixed social security


    how Reagan & the gop fixed social security and why they own it.

    the commission was composed of 15 members.

    Reagan chose 5 including the chairman, they were all either republicans or conservative business leaders.

    the gop senate chose,in consultation with Minority Leader

    3 gop senators
    1 dem sen
    1 labor leader

    the dem house, in consultation with the Minority Leader
    2 gop congressman
    1 dem congressman
    2 pro SS consultants

    So, the bottom line was that 2/3 of the commission were chosen by Reagan and the GOP, while 1/3 were chosen by the dems.

    this is why reagan and the gop own SS , they fixed it, it is theirs, and no matter the bs spin about 'bipartisanship'... the gop loves that kind of bs, the bs of calling 2/3 to 1/3 "bipartisan"
