Republicans Neither Compassionate Nor Conservative

An amendment can't pass that specifies Social Security:

should not have massive benefit cuts (Republicans aren't compassionate,)

and should not create a massive increase in debt (Republicans aren't conservative.)

Telling, that.

Yahoo! News - Bush Brushes Off Qualms About Social Security

"Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, focused on another amendment, sponsored by Florida Democrat, Sen. Bill Nelson (news, bio, voting record), that called for rejection of any Social Security plan requiring deep benefit cuts or a massive increase in debt. It failed to pass on a 50-50 tie, but showed that a handful of Republicans joined the Democrats, Reid noted."
