Destroying Social Security?

Senate Majority Leader-elect Harry Reid from a recent interview:

“We have to govern the way we did for a couple hundred years, not on the basis of ideology, but to get things done. Think, it’s been ten years since we’ve had a raise in the minimum wage. That’s scary. Forty-seven million Americans don’t have health insurance. We have someone trying to destroy social security,” Reid said.

Who Harry? Who is trying to “destroy” Social Security? Is it conservatives? Are they trying to “destroy” the program by being the only public figures who are putting forth proposals to permanently deal with the program’s long term solvency issue?

That seems like a pretty irresponsible comment to me.
