Continuation of previous post

Later, I went back to Brooks' Forum and found a lot of short angry posts denouncing Democrats, Liberals, anyone opposing Bush. Some even admitted that numbers confused them, but they knew what is right.

So, I posed a simple numbers question:

"Why am I supposed to like the Bush indexing scheme, if under his scheme, I lose three quarters (75%) of my Social Security benefit?

"I apologize for numbing your mind with numbers, so I'll try the same question with US Dollars, which even the mathematically-challenged should be able to understand:

"My Social Security benefit is $24,000 a year. Why should I be happy when Bush cuts that to $6,000 a year?"
