16. Well, yes.
A certain percentage of the Dems will back him simply because he is a Dem, even if he put up the exact same proposal that Bush did in 05.

But he is not going for outright privatization like Bush did - what he's doing simply undermines it so as to make it unsustainable. He already started it with the so-called 'tax holiday', decreasing the amount going into SS, promising to make that up out of general revenues while, at the same time, calling for a 4 trillion dollar reduction in spending - how, pray, is he going to pull THAT off? But Dems CHEER him on.

Just like only Nixon could go to China, only a Democrat can kill SS.
