I form of have a look at safety the way in which I might on the Division of Protection and our protection spending. We’re by no means going to not fund protection.
However, on the identical time, we — each single yr, we have a look at how we are able to make it higher. And I feel it’s about time that we begin speaking about Social Safety and making it higher. Now we have received 11 years earlier than we really see cuts begin to occur to individuals which are on Social Safety. And I feel it’d be very accountable for us to do the whole lot we are able to to make these funding applications now and the plans proper now, in order that we don’t run out of cash in Social Safety and that it continues to offer all the advantages that it does immediately.
Merely wanting away from it and pretending like there’s no issues with Social Safety isn’t an acceptable or accountable factor to do. So, I suppose my choice can be, let’s begin managing it.
