New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) urged Congress to address the solvency of programs like Social Security and Medicare and warned Republicans they could face primaries for failing to cut government spending.
Christie said it had become a “political strategy” for Republicans to ignore reforming entitlement programs.
“Our new, bold Republicans that we just sent to the House of Representatives, they’re not talking about it,” Christie said. “They’re waiting for [President Obama] to talk about it.”
