(phone ringing) you can't deal with something, by ignoring it. but that's how some presidential candidates seem to be dealing with social security. americans work hard, and pay into it. so our next president needs a real plan to keep it strong. (elephant noise) (donkey noise) hey candidates, answer the call already. the american people can't afford to wait for ideas that sound good on paper... but will never make it in the real world. the grandmother who has to choose between paying for medicine and paying rent... can't wait. the single mom who desperately needs a raise... can't wait.

their respective nominees through party-sponsored contests in each of the states and u.s. territories, a process that starts in february and takes up to five months. iowa and new hampshire traditionally kick off the process early in the year, and then other states follow -- but before that, candidates have typically spent a year laying the groundwork for campaigns in those regions. once each party has a candidate, they spend the rest of the summer and autumn campaigning until the general election on november 8. one reason they cost a lot is because they last so long. unlike some other countries, there are no rules on how early a candidate can start campaigning -- ted cruz officially announced he was running in march 2015, nearly 20 months before the election. also unlike some other countries, there's no limit on how much you can spend. a presidential campaign can cost up to $1 billion -- and that's not even counting money spent by outside groups. it's not cheap to travel across the country for two years or more, buy advertisements on television, and pay a small army of campaign workers. states have two ways of collecting their party members' votes when choosing a presidential
