Cantor Disagrees With Reid Over Social Security Comments

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Representative Republican of Virginia, took jabs at Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senator Democrat of Nevada, over Reid’s Social Security comments. Reid made comments that the current Social Security program is not facing a financial crisis.

According to Cantor, Reid is a roadblock to addressing the deficit and taking real action to tackle issues with Social Security.

President Obama in his State of the Union address called for a bipartisan solution to strengthen Social Security for future generations. President Obama said reforms must come without benefit cuts. Cantor disagreed with the President on that point, stating that everything should be n the table.

Republicans have said they are willing to examine all options for entitlement programs such as Social Security, in an effort to address the nation’s climbing deficit. The Republicans are committed to leaving the retiree benefits unchanged, at least for those Americans older than 55.

Cantors remarks about Reid came after the Senator made comments on national TV that the problem in Social Security is overstated. Reid told NBC that people who dislike government perpetuate Social Security comments and that the program itself is fine. Senator Reid did include in his comments that Social Security could use improvements. Reid does not want to sacrifice Social Security in order to deal with the nation’s debt.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
