Martin O’Malley Unveils His Plan to Expand Social Security
In a white paper released early on Friday, Mr. O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland, rejects calls to raise the retirement age for Social Security. His plan seeks a big increase in employer-based retirement systems and rejects the idea of privatizing Social Security to keep it solvent.
Mr. O’Malley, like Mr. Sanders, also says that benefits should be increased.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, the leading candidate in Democratic polls, has not said whether she would want to expand Social Security.
