The debate is just starting. Introductions.....Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul had the loudest clapping from the audience.
First issue addressed (Social Security)......those already on social security or about to be....they all say...these people are safe....but...for the
young Americans they want to revise social security and get it on solid ground. Rick Perry is (parroting) Ron Paul's stance on SS. MItt Romney is
really laying into Rick Perry about SS. Now...Ron Paul is speaking....saying he tried to pass a bill protecting SS.Paul says... Allow the young
people to get out of SS and go on their own. Current Seniors will not be affected.....they want to give the younger workers a choice. Now talking
about raising retirement age. Part of the fix....is increasing jobs.
2nd Issue...(balance the budget)...what will they do? Newt G. says we can balance the budget we need to modernize the federal government. Newt said
to stop paying the crooks on SS. Perry on persciption benefits for seniors....said he wouldn't repeal.
Just thought I would document the beginning.....
