Is John Boehner right?

Dear MoveOn member,

Republican Minority Leader John Boehner just proposed deep cuts to Social Security to pay for big tax breaks for the richest Americans.1

To see how popular Boehner's plan is, we asked Sam Seder—the former Air America host and political satirist—to hit the streets to see what some everyday folks think.

How did they respond? They're smart, funny, and passionate—and, well, let's just say they don't see eye to eye with Boehner. Check out the video below to see what Sam found, and then pass it on:
