A new Pew research Poll

says:

While a growing number of Americans consider the fiscal health of Social Security a top priority, the public is split over the current condition of the program. Nearly half (47%) believe it works pretty well and needs only minor changes; 34% think major changes are required; and 15% say the Social Security system has to be completely rebuilt.

Not much has been made in the media about the President's Town Hall Meeting yesterday. It was so clear that the audience was pre-screened as usual, and the questions and statements were planted and pre-planned, except guess who?(hat tip Americablog)

Truth with humor! It's incredible that the president would use the same idiotic argument about African American's life expectancy to try and persuade them to be on board.
