“I don’t trust Linda.”

Totally understandable.

But he claims Trump and the R guvs on in favor too.

Plus, look at it this way. If this constitutionally squishy guy is for it AND it is a freedom-oriented option, then we have a good chance of getting the votes for it.

Keep this in mind too... not sure how many people recall this but Paul Ryan originally rode into DC as the Donald Trump of entitlement reform. He wanted to turn ALL the awful fed entitlements (SS, Medicare, Medicaid) over to the states in the same manner - but he was quickly beaten down by the establishment and then became part of it himself. Anyway, I’m guessing he would still go for what is essentially his own line of thinking from a few terms ago.

SS and Medicare are not entitlements (handouts), like food stamps, Sec.-8 housing and others.

The former two are paid for by employed workers and their employers; plus, the retirees on SS pay taxes on their monthly income and Medicare premiums are deducted, as well.
