GOP Talking Points on Social Security

Interesting Stuff

But what's more interesting is that the talking points have been developed, the stratedgy laid out, the horror stories assembled, but substantive policy reccomendations are missing? Talkingpoints memo has a link the the GOP conference document on Social Security Reform.

Yes, there are some funding issues with the program, but why should I support $2 trillion in new government spending for private accounts that don't fix the underlying problem? Oh yes, and in the end I'll still pay the same amount of taxes, our country will be more in debt, and my promised benefits will be cut substantially. Am I skeptical? Hell yes...but also hopeful.
