Privatization returns in 2007?

“Congress should make Social Security overhaul its top priority next year, while a rewrite of the tax code and revamping the nation’s healthcare system probably will wait until at least 2009, House Ways and Means Social Security Subcommittee Chairman Jim McCrery, R-La., said today.” (sub. req’d)

UPDATE: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) responds to McCrery, saying conservatives “once again are not listening to the American people, who resoundingly rejected this risky scheme last year.” Meanwhile, Rep. George Miller (D-CA) calls on Congress to “strengthen Social Security, not undermine it, and solve the private pension crisis so that all Americans can have a decent retirement.”
