  •  Absolutely! Make SS A Front And Center Issue! (0+ / 0-)

    I look forward to a long, vibrant discussion and debate over the next year and half. One that educates the public what's at stake and gets all candidates on record where they stand!

    Discussing and debating SS can only be a GOOD thing for Dems going into the election!  Use it to spur motivation and turnout!

    This post is dedicated to myself, without whom, I'd be somebody else. Though I'd still be an asshole. My Music: [http://www.myspace.com/beetwasher]

    •  To do that, I think the people who really support (0+ / 0-)

      Social Security need to say clearly that we need to get rid of the cap.

      They also need to point out the trap in the Republican (Ryan's) budget, about having an "expedited process" for "reforming" Social Security.

      The Republicans are hoping to win power by blaming the Democrats for wanting to cut Social Security.  Then, if they get that power, they will privatize Social Security in a minute, before anyone can stop them.

      No wonder Ryan was salivating.
