Chris Shays' town hall meeting
Rep. Chris Shays (R) held a town hall meeing in Darien on Sunday night. Seems like there was a pretty balanced panel with deputy Social Security commissioner James Lockhart and AARP President Marie Smith offering their views on the privitizing Social Secutiry.
Here's my favorite quote from from Shays:
"I am not going to impose my beliefs on Americans if they don't buy off onto it because this is too huge a program."
This is a political way of saying that he isn't totally sold on the whole notion of privatizing social security. I don't awlays agree with Shays but I really admire him as a Republican who doesn't aways walk the party line or drink the kool-aid.
