“It doesn’t have to be the way it is today,” Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli told Judy Woodruff earlier this week, referring to the country’s entitlement programs.

Cuccinelli, the leading Republican candidate in Virginia’s gubernatorial race, sat down with the NewsHour to discuss his new book, “The Last Line of Defense: The New Fight for American Liberty,” and its overarching theme — the overreach of the federal government.

The full book conversation will air Tuesday night on the PBS NewsHour at 6 p.m. ET.

Above, we’ve excerpted a five minute preview, in which he outlines how he’d approach the deficiencies of Medicare.
