Y'ALL WILL HAVE TO LOOK TO THE OTHER GUYS FOR HOPE AND CHANGE:

Mr. Biden's Social Security promise falls flat (Washington Post, August 15, 2012)

On the same trip to southern Virginia, Mr. Biden wandered into the Coffee Break Cafe in Stuart. According to the White House pool report, when a diner there said, "I'm glad you all are not talking about doing anything with Social Security," Mr. Biden responded: "Hey, by the way, let's talk about Social Security. Number one, I guarantee you, flat guarantee you, there will be no changes in Social Security. I flat guarantee you."

Why is this so depressing? Because, as Mr. Biden knows, Social Security is going broke. If "no changes" are made, then by 2033 the program will not be able to pay benefits as promised.
