Christie: Increase Retirement Age by 2 Years Over Next 25 Years

Entitlement programs are “mortgaging away our children’s future” so govt needs to make changes, Chris Christie says at Republican Presidential forum at St. Anselm College in Manchester, N.H.

  • Says higher earners need to forgo social security checks
  • Veterans should be able to get treatment at any health care provider or hospital, not just VA hospitals, Christie says
  • War on drugs has been failure, he says; need to treat non-violent drug offenders, not jail them
  • NOTE: 14 Republican presidential candidates are participating in candidate forum sponsored by New Hampshire Union Leader, Charleston Post and Courier, and Cedar Rapids Gazette, among other media outlets
