Democrats Admit Social Security Problems

Thanks to the guys over at WIZBANG, we have a laundry list of Democrats who DO admit there’s a big problem with Social Security:

"So at some point we've got to stop criticizing each other and sit at the table and work out this problem... Every year we wait to come up with a solution to the Social Security problem costs our children and grandchildren and great grandchildren $600 billion dollars more" Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT): CNN's "Late Edition," 3/6/05

"If Social Security is left alone; benefits after 30 years would be 80 percent of what they are now.” DNC Chairman Howard Dean on Feb. 23, 2005 at Cornell University

"It's a serious issue. We ought to address it..." Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) on ABC's "This Week," 3/6/05

"I am ready, willing, and able to listen to anything the President has to put on the table about the issue of how he is going to deal with the solvency of social security." Sen. Joseph Biden (D-DE): on NBC's "Meet The Press," 2/27/05

"We're not against solving the problem that [Sen.] John Sununu and I both acknowledge exists in social security. All Democrats do." Sen. Jon Corzine (D-NJ) on CBS' "Face The Nation," 2/27/05

There is a an excellent series of comments attached to this post at WIZBANG. Well worth the time and effort, I suggest you go over there and check it out.
