    Somewhere above I made the same point - this Social Security war is about liberal baby boomers, not the greatest generation. What does it mean that baby boomers are on the edge of retirement? Start with the fact that they'll have time on their hands and money to spare. That's what is freaking the conservatives out.

    I'm not even sure BushCo cares if SS reforms happen or not. Victory to them may mean a major and permanent sea-change in how aging boomers are perceived. If their generational war succeeds, it will affect policy in many ways from here on out. There's nothing BushCo fears more than an active, liberal-leaning, and financially secure aging population.
