It’s been an interesting couple of weeks in Kentucky as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell voluntarily and unexpectedly reminded voters of his support for privatizing Social Security.
“After Bush was re-elected in 2004 he wanted us to try to fix Social Security,” said McConnell. “I spent a year trying to get any Democrat in the Senate – even those most reasonable Democrat of all, Joe Lieberman – to help us.” Senator Mitch McConnell
Naturally, the next question from reporters was whether voters should expect the senator to push Social Security privatization after the midterms, McConnell replied, “I’m not announcing what the agenda would be in advance.”
In other words, vote for me now and afterwards I’ll tell you my plans for the nation’s largest and most successful economic security program.
