But while Santorum was inside calling for "a Republican solution to Social Security," a group of GOP activists was outside offering its own message. More from MoveOn.org:
We couldn't believe our ears when we heard a group of Republicans chanting, "Hey, hey. Ho, ho. Social Security has got to go" on CNN last night. But that is what they did, outside Senator Rick Santorum's Social Security town hall meeting in Philadelphia.Depending on whether you believe Bush's reform plan eventually would spell doom to SS, the demonstrators were either incredibly honest or amazingly stupid.
In the meeting, Santorum, the leading supporter of privatization in the Senate, declared that "it is time for a Republican solution to Social Security." But the Republicans gathered outside were more clear about where that plan ultimately leads.
Or perhaps both.
