Bush backers want to weave their own safety nets

To anyone who wonders why President Bush would champion a politically explosive idea such as restructuring the Social Security system and then relentlessly push the agenda even as polls show eroding public support for the plan, the answer came Thursday with the president's trip to Milwaukee.

State battle rages over Nader's presidential bid

Viewers of an upcoming cable ad in Madison will see an odd bumper sticker flash before their screens - "Bush Nader '04?" It's a put-on, of course, but a politically loaded one. A group of Democrats is airing the 60-second spot next week as an attack on Nader, portraying the independent candidate as the helpmate of "right wing" Republicans who think Nader will siphon votes from Democrat John Kerry. "That's just ridiculous," Nader's Wisconsin coordinator, Bill Linville, says of any suggestion the Nader campaign is relying on Republican help in the state.

Questionable Tactics Around for Years

Paul Beckner of Citizens for a Sound Economy wrote that the Justice Department's victory in the Microsoft antitrust case resulting from the judge's decision to break Microsoft into two separate companies, one for the Windows operating system and the other for software, is incorrect ("Microsoft case shows government clearly indifferent to consumers," Perspectives, June 9) . Free-market ideologue Beckner says consumers are the last people on the government's mind, and he chides the Justice Department for misreading the antitrust laws.
