Angle: ‘Getting Out Of Medicare And Social Security Is Not Up For Grabs’

In an interview from three weeks before the Nevada Republican primary, Sharron Angle made it clear that getting rid of Medicare and Social Security is a non-negotiable issue for her.

Greg Sargent reports that in a radio interview with a local Nevada NPR affiliate on May 19, Angle talked about how the VA and Medicare were not covering medications for her father — and she suggested that they shouldn’t, “not if you’re working towards a privatized system.”

Going on in the interview, Angle talks about how as a Senator she would work with other legislators to formulate a proper solution for her idea, haggling over the details and implementation of privatization without giving up on the main idea itself: “The idea of privatizing and getting out of Medicare and Social Security is not up for grabs.”
