BOWLING GREEN, Ky.--()--In the October 3 Kentucky U.S. Senate debate on Fox News Sunday between Dr. Rand Paul and Jack Conway, Conway failed to mention he considered raising the retirement age or cutting benefits to Social Security in 2002.
“A year ago, I was asked 'If Social Security was about to become insolvent, what do you do?' I said Everything's on the table.”
In 2002, Conway Said Raising The Retirement Age And Reducing Social Security Benefits Should Be Considered To Preserve Social Security. "Northup said she supports partial private investment to preserve Social Security rather than raising the retirement age and reducing benefits, which she has ruled out but Conway has said should be considered." (The [Louisville, KY] Courier-Journal, "Northup, Conway Attract Support," Al Cross, July 30, 2002)
In 2002, Conway was quoted saying: "A year ago, I was asked 'If Social Security was about to become insolvent, what do you do?' I said Everything's on the table." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFOxtxl2nGw
