Feb. 9--WASHINGTON -- President Bush is coming to Raleigh on Thursday and bringing along U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole as an example of the rare politician who won office while pledging to change Social Security.
Bush visited five states in two days last week to discuss his plan to allow younger workers to invest part of their payroll taxes in private savings accounts. He continues his trek in the Triangle with an 11 a.m. town hall meeting at the BTI Center for the Performing Arts.
Bush will be host for an hourlong conversation with business leaders, seniors and young people who support his plan. In recent town halls, invitees have said they liked the ability to control their own Social Security and pass on the balance when they die.
