Ney: Staying off the Titanic
In February we noted that Bob Ney sure didn't sound like a supporter of the Social Security phase out. Ney's comments in the Times Reporter makes his opposition pretty clear:
“The White House has got to get off the table any talk about changing benefits,” said Rep. Bob Ney, R-St. Clairsville. “As long as that discussion is out there, this thing is going to sink faster than the Titanic. And anybody that thinks it’s not is just full of themselves.”Ralph Regula also seems to continue as a hold out:
Rep. Ralph Regula, R-Bethlehem Township, is unwilling to support any reform plan until he sees a detailed proposal.
“We don’t have a plan, we have a concept,” he said. “You’ve got to think about how it would work in a practical way, so I’m not at this point ready to sign on to anything.”
