Well, maybe now is the time to call and ask the Speaker of the House why this K Street lobbying firm has a retirement benefit calculator on the Social Security Administration's website that doesn't identify it as a non-government agency's website.
Josh Marshall at TPM had a post just now that was too good not to follow up on. Says Josh:
- "Check out this page socialsecurity.gov, go to the bottom of this page and click the button entitled 'retirement income calculator.'"

If you think your Social Security is even moderately safe when Dennis Hastert is Speaker of the House, think again.
Those who know Denny know that he has never been for Social Security, and has wanted to either eliminate or privatize it for years.
Call the Speaker's office and ask "What gives?"
