No. of Recommendations: 4

"We're certainly open to any suggestions the Democrats have," McConnell said.

But several prominent Democrats stuck to their position that there is no sense in talking until Bush backs off the personal accounts.

"If the president's committed to destroying Social Security, which is privatization, then it doesn't make much sense to get into a negotiation," Massachusetts Democrat Edward Kennedy told ABC. "He drops the privatization, then you have an entirely different kind of circumstance."

California Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer said the Bush plan would add trillions to the national debt.
"Right now, we have a debt of $7.7 trillion. ... This scheme of privatization would add over 20 years another $5 trillion," she told CBS's "Face the Nation."

Hilarious how they won't come out with any suggestions, and smart, since we know their solution already.
