5:16 pm
his dog got spooked and tried to run off. mike: i get spooked too if i saw frozen pants, just wandering around, sitting around. so bizarre. take a look at the nice scene in dublin, the sun is down, still a little light showing out there because we do have clear conditions and the snow cover out there. but really not all that bad a day compared to where we could be and compared to what's happening to our south. right now winds continue to bill in out of the northwest, that stubborn breeze right now driving temperatures slightly below the average. on average it's low to mid teens north, upper teens and central parts of the state and low to mid 20's elsewhere. as we go through time we're going to start to see temperatures creeping up a little bit over the next several days. but the wind and the temperature, yeah, feel-like temperature feels like 4 in berlin. a45 below atop mount washington,

5:18 pm
fair at of sunshine on saturday, but as that monster storm makes its closest run through new hampshire saturday afternoon and sunday morning, clouds will begin to lower and thicken and can't rule out a light dusting of snow, s some flurries, light snow showers in parts of southern new hampshire during saturday evening into the overnight stretch into early, early saturday. on sunday rather. that should be about it in terms of snow. in terms of where the brunt of this storm hits, take a look at the advisories, over 18 states right now under winter storm watches, blizzard watches or blizzard warnings, and here is the reason why. take a look at the future cast snowfall projection down to our south. two feet plus. and you do notice that little wedge of light blue, tries to scoot into southern new hampshire just to say lowell with a light dusting possibly as we go into late saturday evening. overnight tonight, clear and seasonably cold, single digits, very low teens, there's a look at your weekend forecast.
5:19 pm
southern new hampshire saturday afternoon, into saturday night, early sunday morning. that's when we may get just barely brushed with a dusting of snow in southern parts of the state. 48 hours away. that's usually the tipping point, in when we say definitely a miss or could wobble a little bit. so we've got one more run tonight to completely kick it out. but on average it's a southern new england and points south major, major nor'easter. josh: thanks, mike. up next, presidential candidates weigh in on a very important issue protecting social security and medicare.

5:21 pm
josh: tonight we're hearing from republican candidates for president about their take on how they would protect social security and medicare for future generations. >> it makes my blood boil when i hear people say that, well, we're going to have to cut social security, we're going to have to tell these seniors after working for decades and having their checks confiscated with takeouts from the government, that, well, you know what, we blew that money. bernie madoff went to jail for doing that. and members of congress cannot say to the american people that the money that they paid in is not going to be there for them. it's not a matter of if we should do it, it's a matter of

5:22 pm
america will have stolen from its own people. and then lied to them for all their working careers. congress gets a pay raise, so should the people who are on social security. a third of the people on social security in america depend on it for 90% or more of their income. this won't hurt many of the hedge fund managers on wall street. but taking social security benefits away from seniors means you're going to devastate their lives. it's going to devastate veterans. you just don't do that and call yourself an honorable country. >> have the courage to address the problems that they are now experiencing. we can't play politics and look the other way or make false promises. the time has come to address these programs and i now have a program that balances the budget in eight years that includes the reform of both medicaid and medicare with a plan on social security yet to come. >> i'd make it illegal for politicians to steal from the social security trust fund.
5:23 pm
the morning recently saying you shouldn't steal from the social security trust fund for immediate expenses. once again the right wanted to take the social security money and spend it on the military, the left wanted to spend it on immediate welfare. there's supposed to be a pension program, it's for the people who are going to retire at some point and it should not be tampered with, and i would keep the politicians' mits off the social security trust fund. >> if we leave it the way it is it goes bankrupt. we can leave it the way it is for people who are on it now for people like my mother or about to retire, but for future generations it's going to have to work differently. instead of retiring at 6, i may have to retire at 68. if i've been financially successful, my social security benefits may not grow as fast as they grew for my parents and grandparents. i don't think there are unreasonable changes to ask of me and future generations after everything our parents have done for us.

5:38 pm
to keep the conversation going. jean: the oscars air here on wmur on february 28. josh: to commitment 2016, we're hearing more from the candidates about a they would do to protect social security for future generations. >> the case of social security 15 years from now, it won't be able to pay 75 cents on the dollar in benefits. i don't know of anybody that's for that, i'm not. so we have to gradually make changes to the social security system. and i believe the best way to do that is to make it generation alley neutral. same thing with medicare. that is change the eligibility age for medicare, change the age for social security, tracking with the life expectancy. so if life expectancy continues to go up, then the eligibility age will go up. we haven't done that for the first 70 or 80 years of the social security administration. we need to do that.
5:39 pm
can't continue to pay old age benefits to people who are 62 years old, because 62-year-olds aren't old. >> i'm going to save social security and i'm going to save medicare. if you look at ben carson he wants to abolish medicare, which is crazy. because it actually works. now, you want to get rid of the fraud, the waste, the abuse, all of the problems. but you have to save medicare. so carson wants to get rid of it and a couple of others want to get rid of it. that is insane. one of the most popular things, and it really does work, if it were run properly, so i'm going to save social security. and i'm not going to do cuts and surgery on it. and i'm going to save medicare, and we're going to have a system of jobs where our country becomes rich again so that we can afford to have top quality care. we're going to bring jobs back from china, we're going to bring jobs back from japan and mexico and india and all of these countries that are taking our jobs, and we're going to become
5:40 pm
able to afford having quality services again. >> as a candidate i proposed the most comprehensive detailed plans to preserve and protect social security, medicare, medicaid, the entitlement programs. for those that have them now, but assure that they're going to exist for the next generation, because nay won't, they'll be overwhelmed by costs because of our changing demographics, and that requires an approach of slowly but surly raising the retirement age, creating a floor, in my proposal we have 125% of the poverty level for social security benefits to provide a safety net, if you will. compress the income that higher income people will receive, and make changes so you can create solvency. as it relates to medicare, my personal believe is that you could lower costs for seniors by using the scale of the medicare program to the advantage of the beneficiaries but putting out
tv-commercial tv-commercial
5:41 pm
if you did that, most estimates suggest that you could lower premium costs by 7%. >> well, what we have to do in looking at some of these unfunded liabilities is modify them. when social security was put in place the average age of death was 63. now we're looking at 80. and we haven't made the adjustments in the interim. it's scheduled to run out of money in 2033, that's not very far from now. so we're going to have to very gradually raise the ages for people who are 50 and under. leave it exactly the same for anybody who is over that age. and then for people who are under 30, i think give them a plan over which they can have some say in terms of how it's invested. hey can't take money out of it, but money will continue to go into it. they should be able to build up a pretty substantial nest egg.
5:42 pm
own private account. josh: you can find this entire series in the politics section of tomorrow we'll address the issue of immigration. mike: those to our south are placing for a major storm. we're getting closer to the penguin plunge go to our website to see how you can support this great cause, sunday, february 7. prior to that on saturday is the high school plunge, which draws hundreds and hundreds of high school students, jumping into the icy atlantic all for a great cause. looks icy out there at newfound lake. but no ice to be had, that's right, it is breezy and cold right now, and it's been breezy through the past few days and
5:43 pm
no ice able to form due to the active surface of the lakes. an amazing run, one of the latest dates ever that we've had ice form on any of the big lakes and still none up on winnipesaukee right now. teens and lower 20's across a good part of southeastern new hampshire, until you get southeast of manchester, towards the coast, mid 20's here. on average the monadnock region around 20. valleys in the mid 20's. upper teens on average through the lake sunapee zone. right around 20 in and around the lakes region. and a bit colder to the north, teens and single numbers showing up. right at the average, by the way, for this time of year. but still those busy winds, so you factor in the temperature, factor in the winds that feel washington. single digits elsewhere. until you get to the lower merrimack valley, just above that in the lower to mid teens. actual air temperatures tonight,
5:44 pm
