Social Security: The cost of propaganda

From the Center for American Progress:
President Bush's 60-day Social Security privatization road show is getting expensive. According to some rough estimates, the drive to sell his pseudo-policy may be one of the most costly in memory, well into the millions of dollars. Now, House Appropriations Committee Republicans have quietly asked the administration for an accounting of its '60 Stops in 60 Days' blitz. Additionally, Rep. Henry A. Waxman (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Government Reform Committee, formally asked the Government Accountability Office not only for the cost but also 'whether the Bush Administration has crossed the line from education to propaganda.'
