Arizona Republican Congressman Jim Kolbe urges Chimpy to start explaining, specifically, what he proposes to do to make Social Security solvent.
The president met with House GOP members to talk about Social Security, part of an ongoing series of discussions. Rep. Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., said he told Bush ”the time has come where we’ve got to start to put some specifics out there about how we’re going to fix the solvency of it.”
But Kolbe said Bush might not be prepared to do that, yet.
”He does understand that at some point we have to start talking about the specifics,” Kolbe said. ”I think that he may just not be ready to be there yet.”
