I’m a little lost here

The DU Moonbats (are there any that aren’t?) are pushing for "progressives" to sign this Pledge to Protect and Strengthen Social Security. Ok, they are entitled to their opinions. They obviously do not like President Bush’s plan. They want this sent to all their Congress Critters:

I pledge to the people of my district and to the American people that I
will work to strengthen retirement security, including Social Security. My comments in ()

I will oppose Social Security privatization proposals that would:

1. Require cuts in guaranteed benefits to pay for private accounts. (those under 55 will not be eligible, and those already recieving Soc Sec will not be effected. Unless they are still living in 2013, when SS goes into the red, if nothing has been done to fix the system)

2. Weaken the system by diverting money from the Social Security Trust Fund to pay for private accounts. (how does this weaken the system? I have yet to see someone explain this.)

3. Increase the federal deficit to pay for private accounts. (In the short term, yes. The long term is the important part)

4. Increase the retirement age. (Face it: it has to happen at some point. We are all living longer)

Is it just me, or am I missing the part about "strengthening Social Security?" Once again, the Left has no plan. Just whining based on little to no facts.

    They want my money, plain and simple. That is their plan, they just won’t admit it.
