More Young People Believe In UFOs Than Read A Daily Newspaper

By Dean Baker

Yep, it's Social Security crisis time again. For those too young
to remember, the connection between UFOs and Social Security
stems from an urban legend of the 90s.

The story went that polls showed young people were more likely
to believe that they would see a UFO than that they would get a
Social Security check when they retired.

It turns out that no one had ever done a serious poll finding
this result.

Apparently some right-wing crusader had asked people in a bar to
raise their hands if they believed in UFOs and then to raise
their hand if they thought they would get Social Security when
they retired. UFOs supposedly won.

In the latest round in the media's campaign against Social
Security, it looks like the UFOs are still winning.
