    Cardin visited SSA headquarters just before the sequester hit.  He knows our faces.  I like that he doesn't just support the program, he supports the people who administer the program.

    And SSA still has just an acting commissioner.  Obama hasn't named a replacement for the Bush appointee yet.  It makes a difference.  Our Acting Commissioner is very good; she came up through the department and she's got a broad base of institutional knowledge.  But as long as she's only 'acting' she doesn't have the power to make policy changes in response to events.
