* The Republicans used Sarah Palin to drum up support for their candidates, but now the GOP seems to have little use for Palin.

* Which members of Congress have promised to support Social Security? Even though some of the names listed will not be part of Congress in 2011, it is worth noting that there are many members that have signed statements showing their dedication and support for Social Security. For example, here in Ohio's 15th congressional district, Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy lost the election to Republican Steve Stivers, a former bank lobbyist. Stivers refused to sign the pledge to protect Social Security. You can check out your member's stance at OurFuture.
