Chance to pin Tiberi down on Social Security this Thursday

Ohio Congressman Pat Tiberi has not been a supporter of Bush's Social Security phase out plan. That's not to say he has been a strong opponent either. He just strikes us as someone with their finger in the wind, and he admits that the main reason - in fact the only reason we know of - that he hasn't come out in favor of the Bush plan is that his constituents oppose it.

That "unposition" position leaves a lot of room for wiggle and compromise. Isn't it time some consituents and reporters try to pin his position down a wee bit more?

Here's your opportunity. According to a press release Tiberi is holding "neighborhood office hours" in his district Thursday, Feb. 24 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. We don't know if this is really like some of the "town meetings" the Republicans have been using this week to test the waters on Social Security. "Office hours" sounds like something less structured and maybe run by staff.

Anyway, the event is suppose to happen at the Jefferson Township offices located at 6545 Havens Road in the Columbus northeast suburb of Gahanna. Any takers?
