that would let benefits grow faster for poor people than for wealthier Americans I believe a reformed system should protect those who depend on Social Security the Bush said in an primetime news conference from the White House If you work hard and pay into Social Security your entire life you will not retire into Bushs proposal would let benefits grow as already promised for the poorest Americans but cut promised benefits for those making more The proposal marked the first time Bush has offered any specific recommendation to change the retirement system since he proposed allowing younger work ers to divert some of their taxes into private retire ment accounts Bushs first primetime news conference of his second term and fourth of his presidency sug gested an attempt to regain momentum as he faces a daunting array of political problems threatening his agenda His 60day campaign to pump up support for his proposal to partially priva tize Social Security failed to do so Polls show fewer people support his idea than before he started and it is gaining no ground in Congress where virtually all Democrats and some Republicans oppose it In addition polls show Bushs jobapproval rating is at an alltime low lic majorities oppose his handling of Social Security the energy policy Iraq and the economy Skyhigh gas prices are feeding public discon tent and taking a toll on economic
