Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) has been having a tough time convincing his constituents that the president's plan for Social Security is the way to go.

The WaPo reports that Ryan is one of the main Congressmen in the House to be given the responsibility to see how the plan plays with the public. So far, it's not looking good although Ryan would like to see a plan in front of Congress yet this year.

As Ryan made his case to four people in the nearby village of Sharon, population 1,591, Berthal Holmes Long, 90, blurted, "So what?" Long said she worries about promises of substantial returns, when Social Security now seems sure. "Words are rosy, but really what will it turn into?" she asked. "Times change. Everything changes. You don't know what might happen in five years or 10 years."

Only four people turned out? That can't be a good sign for proponents of this thing.
