Welcome to the Save Social Security blog. This blog was established to document exactly where each representative and senator in the 109th Congress stands on Social Security "privatization", a.k.a. Social Security abolition.
UPDATE: Josh Marshall has come up with a better system than this, so I've decided to shut this one down. Thanks to everyone who helped.
I've been amazed at the level of support I've gotten, and the volume of e-mails, but I can no longer keep the site going alone. Thanks for your support.
How you can help

1. Look up all of your Senators and Representatives
Visit your legislator's website and see if they have an "issues" section. If they do, check if they specifically mention Social Security. If they are blatantly supporting privatization or are blatantly against it, we can assume they will support whatever bill goes to Congress.
Call your Legislators, and find out if they are Strongly Against, Leaning Against, On the Fence, Leaning For, or Strongly For Social Security Privatization.
Check mainstream media articles and see if any legislators are blatantly pro- or anti-privatization.
