Chris Lugo on Social Security
A: I believe that Seniors deserve a fair deal. That is why I would support Social Security Notch reform to correct disparities in benefits. Candidate did not respond to requests for information
A: Seniors depend on their representatives to make good decisions, and I think it is clear that Cost of Living Adjustments should be based on the Consumer Price Index for Elderly Consumers. I would support this correction.
A: Although I am concerned about Social Security, I do believe its long term solvency is sound. As a candidate I would stop lending out money reserved for social security into other programs, work to balance the federal budget and increase taxes.
A: Strongly Oppose. I support the full and continued funding of social security and all entitlement programs designed to protect the economic health and well being of our country's most vulnerable citizens, especially the elderly and differently abled.
