Social Security: You First

President Bush's plan to partially privatize Social Security literally is not on the agenda, according to The Hill:
In an e-mail sent to GOP aides and lobbyists late last week, House Majority Whip Roy Blunt’s (R-Mo.) office outlined its list of “priority legislation” on the post-Memorial Day calendar. The list includes gun-manufacturer liability, postal reform and the Central America Free Trade Agreement.
Social Security reform was notably absent from the detailed list of legislative items.
House Republicans are hardly anxious to tackle the issue:
“My sense is that a majority of members over here would prefer the Senate to go first,” [Rep. Jim] McCrery said.
