Congressman Boehlert opposes Social Security privatization

Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo reports that Dryden's Congressman, Sherwood Boehlert, isn't thrilled about the current discussion of Social Security in an radio interview with WAMC Albany:

Among other things, said Boehlert: "I've never been a gambler ... I don't want to gamble with Social Security trust fund moneys. And so I am very, very skeptical of the so-called plans to privatize. And I think a disservice is being done to a great many Americans by sort of sounding the alarm that everything's going to hell in a hand basket and we're going to be broke by 2018. That simply is not so."

Unfortunately, I can't get the clip to play, but I'll keep trying.
