More Matt

It's been too long since I posted another of my usual fawning links to Matt Yglesias. If you haven't been reading his political advice to Democrats on why they should strike back hard against Bush's not-yet-revealed privatization plan without presenting a clear counterplan, he makes the case here in one post. I talked about a lot of this stuff a while ago in explaining why Democrats have rightly given up on bipartisanship, and Dennis left some good comments.

Matt's also been up to some earnest wonkery about the Social Security trustees report. He points out that after the system "goes broke" in 2041, you'll still be receiving higher benefits than you will if Bush "fixes" it by implementing price indexing.
