  • I strongly disagree w/ @MarkGreenbergCT's plan to privatize Social Security & raise the retirement age. Watch @WTNH:
  • Let's turn down the rhetoric, and turn up the hard work #CT5
  • I have a strong independent record. I've broken from party leadership when I thought it was the right thing. #CT5
  • I've worked hard to find common ground in Congress and get things done. I'm a practical problem solver #CT5
  • Social Security is a lifeline for #CT5 seniors. I'm committed to protecting and preserving it
