VIDEO: Alexander on State of the Union address

“What I hope to hear the president say is that he’s going to lead on the biggest challenge facing our country: fixing the debt. The Medicare trustees have told us that in a dozen years, the Medicare program won’t have enough money to pay seniors’ medical bills. This absolutely requires presidential leadership to fix the problem. Senator Corker and I have introduced legislation that will reduce out-of-control entitlement spending by a trillion dollars over ten years to make the fund solvent enough so Medicare can pay medical bills. The president now needs to introduce his own plan, and then we can work together to fix the problem and fix the debt.”
