How Should We Talk about Social Security Without Scaring Americans?
By Nancy French
ROMNEY: The issue s not the funding of Social Security. The funding is not working. Congress has been raiding those funds for a long time. Social Security is a failure. You can’t say to tens of millions of Americans who have lived on it that is a failure. Our nominee shouldn’t be one who is committed to abolishing Social Security, but saving it. We need to keep the program and to keep it secure. I’ll never say it is a failure. It’s working for millions of Americans and I’ll keep it for millions of Americans.
