    His own website - you don't need to read too much between the lines:

    "We must deal seriously with the long-term costs of our entitlement programs.  Part of the solution lies in the health care law that the President recently signed, which saves approximately $140 billion within the first ten years. I look forward to working with the President and my colleagues in Congress to preserve the integrity of Medicare and Social Security while reducing their increasingly large impact on the overall budget.  The path to entitlement reform is a bipartisan one.  We have to move past politics as usual - scaring beneficiaries and putting off tough but essential choices.  When it comes to entitlements, the old battle lines are only making the problem worse."

    A NYT video interview toward the end where he says he wants to cut SS for those in their 40s and below.
