Video: McCain Advocates Social Security Privatization

" ... [Joe] Lieberman falsely claimed, '[McCain] is not for the private accounts to take the place of social security ... He's for what Bill Clinton used to call "Social Security-plus."' (Social Security-plus would create new private retirement accounts on top of traditional Social Security.)

"That is simply not what McCain supports. McCain supports the privatization of the Social Security. Period.

"Watch for yourself. This is McCain speaking on November 18, 2004 in New Hampshire, answering an audience member's question about Social Security privatization."
