As President Would Mitt Romney Sign A Bill That Eliminates Social Security?

Social Security is 77 years old.  It has provided security and dignity to millions of elderly Americans.  George Bush tried to eliminate this American Classic in 2005 by privatizing Social Security.  The bill was H.R. 1776 (109th): Social Security Personal Savings Guarantee and Prosperity Act of in the house by Rep. Paul Ryan and in the senate by senator John Sununu from New Hampshire.  America lost trillions during the 2008 financial crisis, but every American would have been devastated if George Bush and Paul Ryan's plan to privatize Social Security had succeeded.   Not only has Rep. Paul Ryan been trying to eliminate Medicare, he has co-sponsored bills to eliminate Social Security as we know it.  Interestingly, one of Mitt Romney's strongest media defenders, John Sununu, co-sponsored the senate version of the privative Social Security Bill.  Mitt Romney stated that as president he would sign the Paul Ryan Budget that eliminates MediCare as we know it.  Would Mitt Romney also sign a bill that eliminates Social Security?
