Rand Paul discusses Social Security plan in recent speech

Republican presidential candidate Senator “Rand” Paul (Kentucky) said he would institute changes to the Social Security program in a speech given during a recent event in Concord, New Hampshire last Tuesday, January 5. The senator noted that he has no intention of doing away with the program entirely, instead assuring his audience that he hopes “to change how it’s funded.”

The Social Security programs easily remain a beacon of hope and promise to elder Americans who rely on financial assistance from the government in the event of a disability or for stability during retirement. However, funding for these programs is in danger of being depleted as fewer workers’ taxes are supporting the funding for older Americans’ monthly benefits.

Paul’s plan is to extend the retirement age so that Americans will be required to work longer before taking retirement benefits. In addition, wealthier Americans would be eligible for fewer government disability and retirement benefits.
