Bobby Jindal on Social Security
Republican Governor; previously Representative (LA-1)
Rep. Bobby Jindal praised Bush for offering specifics. "The administration has a lot more work to do to continue educating the American people about the very serious challenges facing Social Security. I think today was a great first step; I think more work needs to be done."
One pending question: If workers are rerouting some of their Social Security tax payments into personal retirement accounts, how will the system pay for retiree benefits? Jindal said, "We're not creating one additional dollar of deficit spending by doing this. These transition costs, all they are really doing is recognizing a debt that exists today."
