    Think about it.  This is a much bigger issue.  Over the last couple of years, people have seen their home values plummet, saw the values in their 401(k)s decline, and if they've been unemployed, probably had to tap into their 401(k) just to pay the bills.

    Most people don't have near enough saved for retirement.  NOW the filthy Republicans want to cut Social Security benefits on top of everything else that has gone wrong so that rich people can keep their tax cuts.

    THAT'S the frame.  People know they're going to rely on Social Security even more given the Great Recession, and now the R's are trying to gut it.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.
