Is there a SS crisis or not?

David Broder complains about Bush's proposed budget in his column today in the WaPo. (Full disclosure: I don't much care for the proposed budget in its entirety either, but only because heretofore POTUS has been spending money we don't have on things we can't afford.)

Toward the end, Broder says this:

Reform of these major entitlement programs is the pressing need to avoid a budget train wreck in the next generation, but Bush has offered little leadership on that. His Social Security plan -- for individual savings accounts -- does nothing to address the shortfall in that system.

Now wait a minute. I thought the Demmycrats were telling us there is no crisis.

Well, which is it? I swear, I wish we could all get on the same sheet of music just once!
