The senator from South Carolina sez Dear Leader screwed the pooch on Social Security by stressing private accounts too early in the game.
“We’ve now got this huge fight over a sideshow,” Graham said during a meeting with Washington Post reporters and editors. “It’s always been a sideshow, but we sold it as the main event. [Critics are] attacking it as the undoing of Social Security. That’s what frustrates me — that we’re off in a ditch over a sideshow, and there’s plenty of blame to go around.”
“Let’s have a conversation along these lines: Let’s make a commitment to permanently find solvency, and see where we go,” he said. “Set the accounts aside for a moment. Let’s see if we can find solvency.”
