by Katrina Trinko

The Romney campaign releases a new web video focusing on the $16 billion shortfall they claim would occur in Florida if Social Security was handled by the states rather than the federal government. That shortfall, argues the ad, would lead to either one quarter of seniors losing Social Security benefits or an across the board reduction of more than $4,000 per senior annually. 


The analysis the campaign is using to come up with the $16 billion number can be read here. The Perry campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
