03/22/2005: Senator Harry Reid responds...
Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev - Senate Minority Leader) had several noteworthy things to say about the Democratic "response" to the GOP/Bush Social Security Non-Plan at USA Today:
"...Of course, before we can agree on a detailed plan, we need to agree on a goal. If the goal is to weaken or destroy Social Security, count us out. But when the Republicans are willing to move beyond their harmful privatization plan and discuss measures to truly strengthen the program, the Democrats are ready to work with them.
After all, there is no more positive agenda than saving Social Security."
The question remains...What is the GOP goal here if all their "Privatization" Hoopla does not directly provide the solutions to this issue?
