Rep. John Salazar Critizes Bush on Social Security
"Our number one priority should be to guarantee that all American worker get the benefits they have earned -- everyone should get back what they worked so hard to put into the system. Changing the Social Security system to drain the trust fund and cut benefits simply does not make sense," Salazar said. ....But the privatization of Social Security, Salazar said, "would lead to a 40 percent cut in current benefits for middle-class beneficiaries, add five trillion dollars to our national debt and make the system weaker in the future." "We have a moral obligation to stand up and protect Social Security for the next 70 years and beyond -- that means stopping privatization and dropping partisan demands for private accounts," the congressman said.
