19. If our own leaders can't stand by SS the future of the program has to be questioned.

Social Security is working exactly as the Greenspan commission envisioned. There is NOTHING wrong with the program and absolutely no reason to cut.

I've got 30 more years of paying into the system in front of me and now I see the door has been opened to further cuts with the Minority Leader and the President giving the third rail a bear hug.

If our Democrats can't defend something as fundamental to our values as Social Security private accounts begin to look more attractive to those of us with decades of contributions yet to make. Without trust the concept does not work and my trust level is shrinking daily.
