Tommy Thompson on Social Security

Former Secretary of H.H.S.; former Republican Governor (WI)


Make Social Security solvent

Q: How would you protect Social Security?

A: While Governor Thompson will have additional entitlement, tax and budget reforms to add to Paul Ryan's plan, its core outcomes of limiting spending to roughly 18 percent of GDP and consistently reducing the deficit over time are the right prescription for our economy. It makes Social Security solvent, preserves Medicare for our most needy seniors, maintains a safety net for the poor and provides for sufficient defense to protect our security.
