A Republican's view of Social Security
"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security,unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you wouldnot hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things. Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

--President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1952

So noted....

Update: Apparently this quote is from a letter to Eisenhower's brother on May 2, 1956
