Vice President Joe Biden says Republicans may issue a court challenge to Social Security, just as they have done to the new healthcare law, The Hill reports. No Republicans are suggesting such a step, but obviously it serves Democrats’ political purposes to point to Republicans threatening Social Security.

Biden GOP Social SecurityAt a fundraiser for Pennsylvania Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dan Onorato, Biden noted that his opponent Tom Corbett "is one of a dozen Republican attorneys general actually suing” to overturn the healthcare law.

"I wonder if next it’s Social Security," Biden says. "We mandate you do that, too.”

The Republican challenge to the healthcare law is that it is unconstitutional to require Americans to buy health insurance. But obviously Biden is making quite a leap in logic.
