I think we've seen this movie before:

The first order of business on Social Security, Mr. Bush told the conference, was "to convince people that there is a problem that needs to be addressed." There were no real dissenting viewpoints from the panelists. Away from the conference, some opponents of Mr. Bush's approach, mostly liberals who want to preserve the current Social Security program, said in interviews that the administration was exaggerating the scale of the problem to create an air of crisis that justified radical but unnecessary changes like creating private investment accounts.

Next: rumors of AARP rape rooms....

but... if Congress wants to address a real looming crisis, they can deal with the inevitable Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation disaster.
