Joe Klein gets into it with new Time blogger Dick Armey. He takes exception to what he calls Armey's blather on Social Security and other entitlements, but displays some fundamental misunderstandings. Here's Joe on Social Security:
And then there's social security...that poor, little, teeny-tiny, no-risk safety net we have for those who didn't do so well in life.
I ask, if Social Security is such a great deal, then why is it mandatory? [Armey's quote]
