Carly Fiorina on Social Security

Fiorina believes government spending needs to be brought under control before Social Security can be reformed.

DEAN BORG: Social security recipients are going to get the same amount (no cost of living increase this year) and some of them are complaining.

CARLY FIORINA: As they should.

BORG: Well what would you do differently then?

FIORINA: Well let me tell you where I’m going to start. By the way there are binders full of great conservative ideas on how to reform social security. Have they ever been implemented? Ever? No. All we do is talk about it. Every presidential election cycle we talk about it again.

BORG: What would that do for recipients in Iowa what you plan to do with social security. How would that help them?

FIORINA: What I would plan to do first is go after the 30 percent of government spending that is completely out of control. Because why as a social security recipient should I believe that the government can tackle wisely and fairly and well a complicated problem like social security when they can’t execute their responsibilities with excellence? The government has become inept and corrupt and when people say to me “Well 30 percent, it’s only 30 percent” do you know how much money 30 percent of federal government spending is? Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars. We just got an inspector general report the other day that said the government has paid inappropriately out a trillion dollars to people who don’t deserve it. Boy I tell you what we better get some of that under control before I’m prepared to go to the American people and say let’s talk about how we should reform social security. But we must protect at all costs those people who are dependent on social security.
