Fred gets to sound off on social security

From NBC/NJ's Adam Aigner-Treworgy
Thompson, who often brags that he is the only candidate in the race who has come out with a Social Security plan, and Anderson Cooper gave him the perfect opportunity to keep bragging about his plan. He said that Social Security is not just a "fiscal issue it's a moral issue," and he got the chance to talk about one of his favorite issue. But he did say that the fiscal problem for future generations was more important than all the other issues we hear on the news, which might open the door for some criticism.
