Let's Follow FDR on Social Security!!

From FDR's message to congress on Social Security: "It is proposed that the Federal Government assume one-half of the cost of the old-age pension plan, which ought ultimately to be supplanted by self-supporting annuity plans. "

See, it was intended to be privatized from the very beginning... not only partially, but the whole retirement portion! Let's just ask the Dems to keep their promises, shall we?

It's just too ironic how the Democrats gathered around FDR's statue to protest the "assault" on Social Security.
