    And he just may be the best president we've had in my lifetime. Spot thinks Nixon was but I don't get that at all.

    Where should I start?
    To the Congress of the United States:

    This nation must not break faith with those Americans who have a right to expect that Social Security payments will protect them and their families. The impact of an inflation now in its fourth year has undermined the value of every Social Security check and requires that we once again increase the benefits to help those among the most severely victimized by the rising cost of living. I request that the Congress remedy the real losses to those who now receive Social Security benefits by increasing payments by 10 per cent.

    Beyond that step to set right today's inequity, I propose that the Congress make certain once and for all that the retired, the disabled and the dependent never again bear the brunt of inflation. The way to prevent future unfairness is to attach the benefit schedule to the cost of living. This will instill new security in Social Security. This will provide peace of mind to those concerned with their retirement years, and to their dependents. By acting to raise benefits now to meet the rise in the cost of living, we keep faith with today's recipients. By acting to make future benefit raises automatic with rises in the cost of living, we remove questions about future years; we do much to remove this system from biennial politics; and we make fair treatment of beneficiaries a matter of certainty rather than a matter of hope.

    In the 34 years since the Social Security program was first established, it has become a central part of life for a growing number of Americans. Today approximately 25 million people are receiving cash payments from this source. Three-quarters of these are older Americans; the Social Security check generally represents the greater part of total income. Millions of younger people receive benefits under the disability or survivor provisions of Social Security. Almost all Americans have a stake in the soundness of the Social Security system. Some 92 million workers are contributing to Social Security this year. About 80 per cent of Americans of working age are protected by disability insurance and 95 per cent of children and mothers have survivorship insurance protection. Because the Social Security program is an essential part of life for so many Americans, we must continually re-examine the program and be prepared to make improvements.

    Okay, Nixon was right on with Social Security theoretically, but he didn't see to it that the benefit was tied to cost of living. Other than opening dialogue with China, what did Nixon actually get done? The behavior he and his administration displayed that got them thrown out of office trumped any and all good intentions he may have had. That's irresponsible.

    As for index linking, "H.R. 1 includes: Automatic adjustment provisions which will allow basic payments to keep pace with the cost of living, thus protecting our older citizens against the ravages of inflation. This has long been a goal which I have endorsed."

    Try this one on top of the one before:
    To the Congress of the United States:

    One of the most cherished goals of our democracy is to assure every American an equal opportunity to lead a full and productive life. In the last quarter century, we have made remarkable progress toward that goal, opening the doors to millions of our fellow countrymen who were seeking equal opportunities in education, jobs and voting. Now it is time that we move forward again in still another critical area: health care.

    Without adequate health care, no one can make full use of his or her talents and opportunities. It is thus just as important that economic, racial and social barriers not stand in the way of good health care as it is to eliminate those barriers to a good education and a good job.

    Re: Psalm 109:8

    I recall Nixon's deliberate decision to raise the health care issue was because there was a surge for national health care mounting and he put his support behind HMO's. In fact when the Nixon tapes finally came out, he was heard as being rather critical of the idea all together.

    From the Michael Moore documentary Sicko;
