Shea-Porter Campaign Calls on Guinta to be Honest About his Plans to Abolish Social Security

NEW HAMPSHIRE – Today, the Shea-Porter campaign called on Frank Guinta to be honest with New Hampshire voters about his plans for Social Security.  During Tuesday night’s debate, Guinta once again refused to answer the question about what he would do to keep Social Security solvent.  Guinta has said in the past that he would abolish the system and/or privatize it and put the money on Wall Street.  Social Security is too important for the thousands of New Hampshire seniors and families who rely on this program to have it all taken away.

“Congresswoman Shea-Porter has been very clear about her plan to ensure the solvency of the Social Security Trust Fund,” said Shea-Porter spokeswoman Jamie Radice.  “Frank Guinta refuses to say what his plans are for Social Security.  Guinta has said that he would privatize Social Security, consider turning it into a welfare program, or even abolish the program.  Mr. Guinta needs to be clear about which option he supports.”

Frank Guinta claims he wants to talk about the issues, but he will not give honest answers about his plans.  Granite State voters will hold Mr. Guinta accountable on November 2nd.
