Gokhale dismantles MoveOn’s “myths of Social Security”…

…so I don't have to. Jagadeesh Gokhale of the Cato Institute does a good job of showing how much of what claims are "myths" about Social Security are, well, actually pretty much true. Some of the other myths seem to be things people on the right don't actually claim, such as that Social Security can "only" be fixed by cutting benefits. You could fix it exclusively by raising taxes, it's just that most on the right think it's not a particularly good idea.

Well worth checking out, here.
