Following up on the post immediately below, I think we're likely going to start tracking some positions here on Social Security, now that the president has announced he's going to take another stab at phasing out Social Security next year. So, for starters, if you live in Rep. Chocola's (R-IN) district, let us know the latest about what he's saying his position is on phasing out Social Security.
And if you're not in Indiana's second district, let us know the latest you've heard from your member of Congress.
Here's Rep. Chocola's current position on Social Security from his congressional website: "Social Security has long been, and continues to be, a critical resource for millions of Americans entering retirement. While the system can be maintained in the short-term, it is clear that reforms must be made without jeopardizing the payments that current and future retirees need and deserve. The President recognizes the undeniable challenges created by the pending retirement of the baby boom generation and is leading necessary debate. I look forward to participating in this debate while working towards a bi-partisan solution."
I think that means he's pro-phase-out. But he's trying to keep it fuzzy.
