seriously what is it with republicans and crying about well sourced articles that contradict their poorly sourced beliefs

You mean like the source that Obama keeps citing that says Romney's tax plan will cost $5 Trillion.....even though the author of said source (Professor Rosen of Princeton University) has come out publically and said that the Democrats are completely wrong in their interpretation of his work. That he can't even start to imagine how they came to the conclusion that they did.

Yet, Obama continues to cite it in his speeches.

Those sources?

GM can teach us a lot about legacy costs and less people paying in for a larger # that preceded them.

I would not downplay ss at all. The way its funded and how its tied to treasuries is iffy.
