In the book you wrote this before this campaign again you said you were surprised that the press in the last campaign didn't press for more specifics.
On how to fix social security and Medicare so let's fix that tonight.
Let me ask you specifically.
Would you reduce the cost of these programs by raising the retirement age for Social Security.
By raising the eligibility age for Medicare or by reducing benefits for seniors with higher incomes.
-- -- it out first of all for the people who are already retired or 55 years of age and older nothing changes.
It's very important because I know the Democrats are going to be showing videos of you don't all people being thrown off cliffs and so forth but don't forget.
Don't forget who was the cut Medicare by 500 billion dollars and that was present Obama to pay for obamacare so let's not forget that.
What what I would do a Social Security is that I would lower -- for that if you will the 2.0 diversion for the next generation is coming up I've lowered.
The rate of inflation growth in the benefits received by higher income recipients and keep the rate as it is now pretty high for lower income recipients.
And it also add a year to two to the retirement age under Social Security.
That balance of Social Security.
With regards to Medicare.
I would -- -- the plan that well actually did a couple of months ago that said again.
For a higher income recipients lower benefit.
A premium support program which allows people to buy either current standard Medicare or a private plan.
And this is the proposal which congress and Paul Ryan is adopted its proposal which I believe it's actually right on.
We have a premium support program give people choice let competition exists in our Medicare program by virtue of the two things I've described.
Higher benefits for lower income people.
Lower benefits for higher income people.
And making a premium support program and Medicare.
And and and Social Security a -- a slightly higher retirement age you balance those two programs by the way the third major entitlement.
Medicaid you send back to the states and the fourth new entitlement obamacare repeal I want and finally get a balance sheet right.
