UPDATE: The Home Front - Louisiana

The Louisiana Democratic Party posts a statement opposing President Bush's plan to privatize Social Security.

February 24, 2005

Dear Friends,

As you may have already heard, President Bush is proposing to privatize Social Security, a move that would result in deep benefit cuts and create massive new debt. Using the action alert tools on our website, contact your elected representatives and urge them not to support President Bush’s detrimental privatization proposal. Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper about how President Bush's proposal is wrong for Louisiana.
This is the first time that the state party in Louisiana has articulated a position on privatization. When UncommonSense conducted its survey of state Democratic Party websites, Louisiana had only gone so far as providing a link to a statement from the DNC.
