Here is the extremely broad-ranging <$NoAd$>list of participants for the Social Security (abolition) panel at the president's "Securing Our Economic Future" conference.
Richard D. Parsons, Chairman and CEO, Time Warner Inc.; Co-Chair, Presidentâs Commission to Strengthen Social Security (New York, NY)
Liz Ann Sonders, Chief Investment Strategist, Charles Schwab and Co. (New York, NY)
William Roper, Dean, School of Public Health, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Chapel Hill, NC)
James Glassman, Senior U.S. Economist, JP Morgan Chase (New York, NY)
Tim Penny, Professor, Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota; Member, Presidentâs Commission to Strengthen Social Security; former U.S. Representative (Waseca, MN)
Sandy Jaques, National Advisory Council Member, Women for a Sound Social Security Choice (West Des Moines, IA)
Everyone from Wall Street economists who support ending Social Security, to think-tankers and activists who support it too.
[ed.note: I tried to find a link for everyone. But neither google nor Nexis gave me any results for "Sandy Jaques" or her organization "Women for a Sound Social Security Choice." So presumably it's another phoney-baloney astroturf outfit that's so new their site isn't even listed on google yet. I'd figure Mr. Synhorst would be more on his game for the big moment.]
Late Update: A reader sent in this press release about the mysterious Ms. Jaques from October 6th of this year. That was apparently before she cooked up 'Women for a Sound ... etc.' She seems to come out of Citizens for a Sound Economy.
From this page, it sounds like Jacques is a classic astroturf operative.
