Pig In A Poke

George W. Bush on open and full debate in a democracy about changing the most popular domestic program in history:
Even when pressed, the president refused to say whether he would favor an increase in the cap as part of an overall solution.
“The tendency in Washington is, ‘OK, Mr. President, you play your cards now and we’ll decide if we’re going to play ours,’ ” Bush said. “I’m not going to do that. I’m keeping them close to the vest.”
In short, he's trying to sell us a pig in a poke.

Hey Mr. President, it's your grand idea to change this program. It's up to you to put your cards on the table. It's your plan Congress will be voting on.

After all, I don't want you playing poker with my retirement money, no matter how much fun you may have doing it.

Play poker with your own money, not mine.
