    because of site changes.

    This piece set off a flurry of Social Security campaigns, AARP among them:

    That is what this diary is about. Putting a human face on Social Security. There are many human faces that depend on Social Security, millions. You know lots of people that depend on Social Security, but rarely do we think about them.

    Something that the Republicans have done devastatingly well over the last 20 years is to make Social Security into a retirement investment. It is not an investment for retirement, it never was. It is insurance. Insurance against family tragedy for the young and insurance for a comfortable retirement.

    My grandmother is a Social Security success story. If I were running for President and I wanted to preserve Social Security, I would need look no farther than my grandmother for my positive narrative.

    Democracy - 1 person 1 vote. Free Markets - More dollars more power.
