SOCIAL SECURITY REFORM IS GOOD: Much like apples and brushing one's teeth is good for one's body, social security reform is good for our national, collective body.

Despite several major policy addresses, it seems that Republicans--let alone our dear, embattled President--are unwilling to touch the infamous third rail of politics: social security reform.

However, leave it up to our breath-freshening Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) and Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) to introduce an amendment in the Senate which, if successful, may lead to actual debate on social security reform.

And as we all know, the potential of debate is really moving forward in Washington.

According to Students for Saving Social Security, the DeMint Amendment creates a reserve fund in the budget resolution that would enable Congress to pass legislation protecting all or part of the Social Security surpluses. Novel idea, eh?
