Romney and Social Security

Romney wants to tackle the social security issue and Medicaid. Based on his past performance of with the State Health Insurance plan in Mass. he could be the man to do what the nations been waiting for.


Romney talks more on Social Security Reforms today:

Romney said there have been suggestions the Social Security issue be turned over to a panel similar to the one that recommended military base closings.

"That's an approach that's been considered and is probably not a bad idea," Romney said. "That may be where we have to go."

While Romney said "statesmen in both parties" could sit down and resolve the politically potent issues, he conceded that is unlikely.

"If there's a partisan divide, then we may have to move to a (base closing) kind of approach to end up with a solution that makes sure that we honor the expectations of our seniors, but also doesn't put us in the position where we can't honor the promises that are being made to 30- year-olds and 40-year-olds," Romney said.

I think, and correct me if I am wrong, Romney is the first presidential hopeful to begin talking about this hotbutton issue. This is of course to be expected. Romney has personal confidence in his abilities to fix goverment's problems. I would like to hear Guiliani's plan for Social Security or even McCains, I doubt they are very substantive if they even do exist. One thing is for certain- Romney knows buisness and economics like no one else in the field.
