Upton also said he's against raising the retirement age for Social Security to over 67.
Some liberals have voiced their concern that Upton is nothing but a conservative in moderate’s clothing who will ultimately go along with his party’s anti-entitlement agenda on the committee.

Fingers crossed, but trusting a Republican to do the right thing is like trusting Michele Bachmann to avoid embarrassing herself.
