The Democrats' Negligence.
Earlier this week, Harvard University's Institute of Politics released its Survey of Student Attitudes: The Global Generation (.pdf).
In it, college students expressed deep concerns about Social Security:
Meanwhile, in Harvard's study, students were asked which of two approaches to dealing with Social Security they would prefer. Respondents had a choice between the following items:
1. Private Investment, with the risk that people might lose money.
2. Current System, with the risk that there might be a payout shortfall.
52% of the 1,206 undergraduates surveyed by Harvard from March 21 to April 4, 2005 chose the first option, private investment. Only 38% chose the second option, the status quo. If the second option had been "Current System, with its guaranteed benefit shortfall," perhaps even more would have supported the reform option. Also, the risk that people might lose money under a reformed plan is roughly negligible; no serious reform plan on the table today includes the possibility of betting on the wrong stock. On the contrary, personal account plans on the table would involve highly diversified portfolios resembling the Thrift Savings Plan available to employees of the Federal Government.
Thus, if the options were presented more accurately, there is little doubt students would support personal investment accounts in even greater numbers.
Meanwhile, what are the Democrats doing to solve Social Security's problems?
Social Security Is Not In Crisis.
I’ve more important things to ask about than this silly Social Security thing.
Social Security is a problem, but it's not in my top five.
Pelosi has ordered House Democrats to “oppose, not propose,” changes to Social Security, according to a well-placed Democrat.
The DO-NOTHING DEMOCRATS strike again.

I notice that Condi was there, too. I hope she stayed away from the punch.

Of Course They Don't Need To Think About It! They aren't paying into Social Security for themselves! They have a real nice governmental retirement plan! Hilary has to think about running for President...

Harry, Loretta, Hillary,and Nancy don't need to think of Social Security as a crisis! They can think of S.S. as silly and not a prority... These elected officials have voted themselves a really nice retirement! They are so self centered. They aren't thinking of the American people. Who incidentally, are suppose to be working for Us!!...Americans young and old alike need to wake up and see the light! We are paying their salaries! They are draining ours and taking our future generations down a downhill rocky trail.
