Blowing Up Old People

Now, I'm not surprised that the conservative lobby is taking the fight for Social Security privatization to the lowest possible denominator but I am surprised about the crassness with which they speak about it. Here's a nifty little quote from the president of the lobbying agency fight the AARP. Incidentally, it's the same group that consulted the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth from what I gathered.

"They [the AARP] are the boulder in the middle of the highway to personal savings accounts," said Charlie Jarvis, the group's president and former deputy secretary for the interior in the Reagan and first Bush administrations. "We will be the dynamite that removes them."
