There's only a SS crisis if the Democrats are in charge...

DEMOCRATS AND LIBERALS ON SOCIAL SECURITY in LATE 1990s



Senators:


  • Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV): "[M]ost Of Us Have No Problem With Taking A Small Amount Of The Social Security Proceeds And Putting It Into The Private Sector." (Fox's "Fox News Sunday," 2/14/99)
  • Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY): "We Have To Move On Now, And Start Fixing Social Security And Preserving It And Reining In The HMOS And Making Our Schools Better." (Fox's "Special Report," 2/12/99)

    And a whole bunch more is listed in this document obtained by Raw Print (see page 34)

    Comments:
    Bush's plan: No social security means no social security crisis.

    Which of those comments advocates spending $600 million up front for private accounts? Dems are talking about tweeking and fixing SS, Repubs are talking about cutting it into 300 million pieces.
