Steve Daines on Social Security
Here's the Q&A from April 17 that Daines refers to:
Reporter: Do you think there would ever be a circumstance where the privatization of Social Security would make sense?
Walsh: You know, I'd have to take a look at all the options--but not for those that are currently in Social Security right now. I can see, you know, maybe if there may be an option where they look at it for new employees coming into the workforce--that they may look at that--but it's not something that I'm going to support with those that are currently on the program or currently working in the program.
Scoring system for 2014: Ranges from 0% (supports privatization and other market-based reforms) to 100% (supports keeping federal control over Trust Fund and Social Security system).
