Treasury Dept Being Used to Spin Shrub's Lies

I can't tell you how irritated I am that Shrub is using tax dollars to fund his bullshit room at the Treasury Department. Officially called the "Social Security Information Center," it's really a place to spin lies about the stability of social security and to promote privatizing all savings for retirement.

Just to clarify, the government has no money to hire more people to go after dead beat corporations who refuse to pay their taxes, but there's plenty of money to hire "communicators" who spin political lies for a conservative huckster. Gee, what a perfect use of the Treasury Department! Next thing you know, we'll be getting rid of the IRS because it is too intrusive. Wouldn't want fat cats to actually have to pay for the corporate welfare they constantly receive.
