Bruce Poliquin on Social Security
The good news is that we CAN keep the retirement and health care promises made to our senior citizens; save Social Security and Medicare for future generations; and still address our nation's fiscal and jobs crises. There should be no change to the expected benefits received by our retirees or soon-to-be seniors. However, adjustments to the programs must be made for future generations if those benefits are to be there when needed.
As Maine State Treasurer, I helped lead the successful effort to solve a similar problem in Augusta.
