Jon Huntsman on Social Security

Republican UT Governor


Stop frightening Americans & fix the system

Q: When it comes to reforming Social Security, is anything from your perspective off the table?

HUNTSMAN: I don't think anything should be off the table except maybe some of the drama that's playing out here on this floor today. You've got Gov. Romney, who called it a fraud in his book "No Apology." And then you've got Gov. Perry, who is calling this a Ponzi scheme. All I know is that we're frightening the American people who just want solutions. And this party isn't going to win in 2012 unless we get our act together and fix the problem. We all know that we've got entitlement problems, we've got Medicare, we've got Social Security--the fixes are there. The Ryan plan is there, for heaven's sake. We've got the answers. We don't have leadership. That's the problem.
