Warner: As chairman of the National Governors Association, I helped formulate a bi-partisan plan to slow the growth of entitlement health care costs, and I'll bring the same approach to Washington. Social Security benefits are the bedrock of retirement for most Americans. It's estimated that without Social Security, more than 50% of seniors would be living in poverty and for two-thirds of the elderly, Social Security provides the majority of their income. I support a bi-partisan commission similar in structure and process to the BRAC commission, which seeks to reduce the influence of politics and special interests and concludes with a simple "up" or "down" vote on its ultimate recommendations, to explore commonsense ideas that will keep the Social Security program secure and solvent.
