Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty says the time has come for bold reform in government policy. For example, the former Minnesota governor promises to offer a plan to reform Social Security, an issue most elected officials have been unwilling to address, The Hill
"I think any doofus can go to Washington, D.C., and maintain the status quo or incrementally change things," Pawlenty told ABC Sunday. "But for the country, the hour is late . . . and we have to take significant action soon. This is time for people who want to be leaders in a bold way to come forward and say, 'We really have to change things significantly.'"
Although Pawlenty didn’t criticize GOP Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget plan, he said his will differ. "For example, he didn't address Social Security. I will, and we already are.”
