Thompson spokesman Jeff Sadosky responded to a couple of follow ups to last night’s debate:
1. Is his indexing of social security benefits to inflation a concrete proposal? “Yes, switching to indexing the adjustment to prices from wages could actually make up more than the entire anticipated shortfall in Social Security, depending on how it is implemented.” Does he rule out tax increases? “Yes.”
2. What about the need to call in the attorneys on Iran? “Senator Thompson made it known last night that when it comes to our national security, it won’t be his attorneys that he will first sit down with, it will be his generals.”
