Financial Times view

The London Financial Times describes Social Security Reform as dangerous for Democrats.

Among people aged 18 to 29, 68 per cent support a plan that would allow investment of some of their Social Security contributions in the stock market, according to a Washington Post poll this week. In the 30-39 age bracket, 63 per cent back such a proposal.

This is particularly troubling for Democrats, as the youth vote was where they scored their clearest victory in last year's elections. John Kerry, the Democratic presidential candidate, hauled in 54 per cent of 18- to 29-year-old voters, Mr Bush just 45 per cent.

Not sure I agree. But this is their view.
