Many Republicans have been saying things similar to Rep. John Mica (R) of Florida.
Rep. John Mica (R) of Florida phones in to the Associate Editor of The St. Augustine Record ... tells Margo Pope that "the details are sketchy," and he'll wait for more before taking a position. As for private accounts, said Mica from his undisclosed location, "I am concerned about making any investments (of Social Security) funds in speculative funds.
Josh Marshall over at Talking Points Memo has been keeping track of the different Republicans and their, often, non-stances on the President's social security ideas.

The Republican congressmen have been reticent to make any firm statements about Social Security privatization, mostly that they are waiting to see the details of the President's plan

The President says he hasn't laid out a specific plan and he's waiting to hear from Congress.

Who's going to step up and risk the ax? The President or the Congress?

- Murphy
