Social Security

I know that the current administration wants to monkey with Social Security and I have little confidence in their ability to better the system as it currently stands. Their economic platform has been as rickety and ill-informed as every other part of their platform, and the idea of letting them loose on the crowning glory (perhaps) of the New Deal is frankly horrifying.

I also know the administration loves to create crises where none exist, so they can rush on in and be saviors (see "Iraq, invasion of").

Do we really want the future finances of the little guy to be in the hands of people who have shown no compassion for him and blatant disregard for the truth?

Some basic facts may be found here.
