NU Online News Service, Jan. 13, 2004, 11:54 a.m. EST – The National Center for Policy Analysis, Washington, is sponsoring a week-long television advertising campaign in Iowa this week to draw attention to the financial problems facing Social Security.[@@]

The ad features Michael Whalen, an NCPA board member from Iowa, who argues that policy makers are paying too little attention to the projected $25 trillion Social Security funding deficit.

“Candidates are roaming Iowa refusing to address Social Security’s dismal future,” Whalen says in the commercial. “They run and hide when voters ask about it. The question is: Do they want to dramatically raise taxes, slash benefits or pursue real reform? Make sure you ask the candidates.”

The NCPA is a Washington think tank that promotes free-market principles.
