Preserving Medicare, Social Security

Jan 17, 2013
Carter Wood

Business Roundtable-member CEOs Gary Loveman of Caesars Entertainment and Randall Stephenson of AT&T briefed reporters Wednesday on BRT's recommendations to modernize Social Security and Medicare, reforms necessary to preserve the programs while putting the United States on a long-term path toward fiscal stability.

The report is "Social Security Reform and Medicare Modernization Proposals," available here. An audio file of the hourlong news briefing, which also included BRT President John Engler, can be accessed here and a transcript is here.

Loveman, who chairs BRT's Health and Retirement Committee -- Stephenson is vice chairman -- appeared afterward on Fox New's Neil Cavuto's program. The video is below.

Loveman also had an op-ed published in Wednesday's Wall Street Journal, "How to Save the Federal Safety Nets," which argued: "The fiscal cliff has been averted, preventing immediate economic calamity. But for long-term economic growth, we must get serious about entitlement reform and government spending."
