(Neb.)-Senate Candidate Deb Fischer Says Social Security Needs Reform

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 07/31/2012 09:56 AM
     OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Republican Senate candidate Deb Fischer says Social Security is on the road to bankruptcy, but she is committed to needed reforms.
     The rancher from Valentine discussed Social Security on Monday after her Democratic opponent, Bob Kerrey, released a detailed reform proposal for the program.
     Fischer's campaign spokesman Daniel Keylin says the state senator has proposed increasing the retirement age for people younger than 40 and adding a means test for benefits.
     And Fischer wants to prevent Congress from being able to use money from the Social Security trust fund for other purposes. But Fischer has signed a pledge not to support any tax increases.
