The Moose brings us further evidence of the real motives behind the effort to undermine Social Security. It comes in the form of a quote from a prominent conservative in the New York Times:

"Social Security is the soft underbelly of the welfare state," said Stephen Moore, the former president of Club for Growth, an antitax group. "If you can jab your spear through that, you can undermine the whole welfare state."

There you have it folks. If they succeed in gutting Social Security then that will be the end of the entire 20th century experiment in social welfare.

This fight is that important.
