Linda McMahon Would ‘Sunset’ Social Security

Linda McMahon may be running for U.S. Senate from CT, but she’s telling us all what Republican control of the Senate would mean for Middle Class Americans … and it ain’t pretty. Vote for Elizabeth!!

NEW YORK — In little-noticed remarks at a Tea Party town hall meeting earlier this year, Republican Connecticut Senate candidate Linda McMahon proposed introducing a “sunset provision” into the Social Security Act.

McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, has consistently dodged questions about cutting government entitlement programs in her two Senate runs.

Speaking before a group of Tea Party supporters in Waterford, Conn. on April 20, however, McMahon said she would consider making major changes to Social Security, from raising the retirement age to means-testing benefits. She also proposed introducing a “sunset provision” — the legislative term for putting an expiration date on a law unless it is renewed.
