Chandler Changes Mind on Financial Literacy?

After several weeks of campaigning against investment in U.S. financial markets and insisting that the looming insolvency of Social Security should be solved by enormous tax increases, Rep. Ben Chandler (D-KY) voted yesterday to create a national Financial Literacy Month.
The problem with this vote is that Chandler's campaign against Social Security reform depends heavily on a lack of understanding of the financial concepts involved.
