Crapo offers "compromise" Social Security plan; audience calls it anything but
By Nicholas Collias
On June 22, over a video link from Washington, D.C., to Boise, Sen. Mike Crapo gave a small group of Idahoans a preview of the latest Republican strategy to privatize Social Security into "personal accounts." He also justified a new bill, introduced a day later and co-sponsored by both Crapo and Sen. Larry Craig, as "an effort to find a compromise with folks like you," since his audience were all outspoken opponents of privatization. When the video link ended, the parties on both sides of the issue remained exactly where they stood before the meeting.
