Just A Reminder: Republicans Still Want to Tinker With Social Security

If you still need a reminder about why you should vote for Democrats in the comining election, here is one: Palm Beach Post

...House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, told the Washington Times last month "if I'm around in a leadership role come January, we're going to get serious about it (Social Security)."

Bush pledged in a July 26 speech that he will not abandon his proposals for the program in the absence of congressional action.

"If we can't get it done this year, I'm going to try next year. And if we can't get it done next year, I'm going to try the year after that," he said....

IF the Republicans continue to have the majority in the House and the Senate THEY will set the AGENDA. THEY will continue to choose when there are hearings, which bills make it out of committee, which bills get voted on, and so on. The same goes for Social Security. IF the Republicans stay in the majority, they will get their hands on Social Security and start to change things. We cannot afford any more time with Republicans in the majority.

By the way, Republican Rep. Deborah Pryce (OH-15) is a big time supporter of Bush's plan to change Social Security. Here are Pryce's views on Social Security reform.
