Candidate Christie Breaks Ranks on the Social Security Issue, Advocates Cuts

Speaking at an Atlanta conference a few days ago, Christie admonished fellow candidates for their absence of intent to deal with the solvency problem. GoBankingRates reporter Vance Cariaga, in a post on their website, recaps Christie’s remarks, quoting him as, ““We have got to have this conversation. And other than me, nobody in this race is willing to talk about it. It’s ridiculous.” Read the Cariaga post here.
