i'm not making this up
Back when it looked like the stock market had nowhere to go but up, the Republican Party decided to tout a program by which workers could invest part of their Social Security taxes in private accounts. They called it "privatization" (it's a matter of public record). Now that the stock market has proved that economic cycles were not abolished after all, the term "privatazation" polls as an absolute non-starter. The RNCC can certainly be forgiven for instructing its own candidates not to use the verboten term, but they're going much further: Insisting that no one, not Democrats or the press, use the term, and that doing so--using the very word that they once advocated--is somehow "biased." In short, they are lying.
Talking Points Memo has several excellent posts on the subject.
