What do they have in common? They’ve all worked diligently to destroy Social Security. While the murderous Pinochet was confined to Chile in his efforts, his henchman, José Piñera, sponsored by the Koch Brother’s Cato Institute has succeeded in dismantling the livings of the elderly in Slovakia. And while Piñera’s fan and advocate, George W. Bush did not succeed in his 2005 attempt to destroy our nation’s aid for older Americans, Piñera and the Koch’s remain relentless in their efforts to accomplish that goal.

Don't forget that they are all libe(R)tarians at heart.

Working hard to further corrupt as many countries as they can, ours included.

It's why the Kochs are suing CATO to bring it back into their control.

Yes, Charley wants his toys back.

While Dr. Paul is still looking for his marbles!

George Bush was a progressive liberal.

He expanded the size of the federal government and increased spending on both defense and social programs.

He expanded Medicare in 2003 with the biggest single expansion in the program’s history adding a prescription drug plan.

He put through an 80% increase in education spending. He also signed into law H. R. 4664, far-reaching legislation to put the National Science Foundation on a track to double its budget over five years.

He put through the 2005 highway bill a "public works project" which cost $295 billion.

Economic regulation expanded rapidly during the Bush administration. The Bush administration increased the number of new pages in the Federal Registry in 2007, a record amount of regulation. Economically significant regulations, defined as regulations which cost more than $100 million a year, increased by 70%.
