Everything I need to know...

...about the Social Security debate I learned from Digby:
They want to destroy social security. They voted against it in 1935 and they have been trying to figure out a way to get rid of it ever since. The Republicans do not believe that we should have a safety net for old people. They never have.

Don't get bogged down in details, just repeat, repeat, repeat. They do not believe that the government should provide all Americans with a small guaranteed income when they are unable to work due to old age or debilitating illness. They never have. The Republicans want to destroy social security.
Rinse. Repeat. Ad infinitum.

That's our case, in a nutshell. It's straightforward and succinct, and has the added advantage of being true.

They don't want to reform, preserve or even privatize Social Security.

They want to destroy Social Security.

You know it's true. Speak the truth.
