Blumenthal took questions from the floor from this year's Boy's State delegates, covering a wide range of topics including Connecticut's Department of Defense contracts for submarines; the potential of increased water scarcity on the planet; the need for chiropractic care for veterans; the state of the social security system, which Blumenthal called a "bedrock promise to the American people"; the current tax code and corporate tax breaks; our relationship with Pakistan; and the potential for cyber-attacks.
