Dean Barkley on Social Security
Independent Senate challenger
A: Yes. The disparity is unfair and needs to be corrected.
A: For political reasons, Congress refuses to address the impending failure of both Medicare and Social Security. How many more commissions do we need before we have the courage to fix these vital programs. The answer to the problem is simple: you either have to increase your income or decrease your costs or do a combination of both. People may not be happy with raising the social security tax or raising the retirement age but doing nothing will be a disaster.
A: Do not support. Privatization will not fix social security. We need real fixes to save this program.
