Billionaires For Bush Auction Social Security on eBay

America's Most Revered Institution Available to Corporate Bidders Monday, March 21st -- Monday, March 28th

New York, NY, March 21, 2005 — Anxious to realize the corporate profits of a privatized Social Security, and frustrated with President Bush’s failure to convince the American public to disregard their best interests in support of Wall Street, Billionaires For Bush (B4B), advocates for the corporate elite, offer the federal program on eBay to the first privately held Brokerage firm that can meet their reserve.

Corporate giants are encouraged to bid at the following URL:

Billionaires For Bush enthusiastically support the President’s proposal to privatize Social Security, anticipating a potential $279 billion in fees to brokerage firms over the next 75 years. “Though we are united in our attention to the bottom line, we want the President to continue his efforts to convince the American people to risk their retirement. Meanwhile, we’ll start the profits building,” said Monet Oliver d’Place, National Co-Chair.

The Billionaires look forward to a lively week-long bidding competition. All serious bidders will enjoy increased access to Congress and special favors from the White House. However, the eBay posting reads, "Employees of the government, their families, and any American who actually needs Social Security (or will one day in the future) are not eligible to bid. Ordinary Americans will remain eligible, however, to pay our brokerage houses to manage their private accounts."

While Wall St. Firms lobby quietly for privatization behind the scenes, the Billionaires openly tout President Bush's entertaining plan to add the element of surprise to Social Security payments. Mr. d’Place said: "It's like a dice game: your retirement income will be based on how you're doing when you get out. Some will lose everything, but others might win. The only guaranteed winner, of course, is Wall Street. And besides, gambling isn’t fun unless you’re staking something big, like a yacht or someone else’s retirement savings. And Wall Street is the house that always wins!"

"Moving Social Security accounts under the control of Wall Street brokers — and, of course, guaranteeing commissions to stockbrokers no matter how much money the taxpayers lose — will fatten our wallets for generations to come," noted Cassius King, the Billionaires for Bush Minister of Theoretical Finance. Paving the way for the elite to secure private ownership of America's Public Trust, this auction continues B4B's campaign for unchecked corporate power.
