Clinton is against privatizing social security and wants to expand benefits for the poor.
DANA BASH: Secretary Clinton the question was not just about tuition though. It was about Senator Sanders plan to expand Social Security, to make Medicare available to all Americans. Is that something that you would support and if not why not?
HILLARY CLINTON: Well I fully support Social Security. And the most important fight we’re going to have is defending it against continuing republican efforts to privatize it.
BASH: Do you want to expand it?
CLINTON: I want to enhance the benefits for the poorest recipients of Social Security. We have a lot of women on Social Security, particularly widowed and single women who didn’t make a lot of money during their careers and they are impoverished. And they need more help from the Social Security system and I will focus on helping those people who need it the most and of course I’m going to defend Social Security. I’m going to look for ways to try to make sure it’s solvent into the future and we also need to talk about health care at some time because we agree on the goals we just disagree on the means.
