Press Release
Washington, DC - Congresswoman Linda Sánchez (CA-39) responds to President Bush’s State of the Union address:

“Tonight President Bush outlined his irresponsible plan for Social Security. It puts millions of American working families at risk of being left out in the cold during their golden years. By using private accounts, President Bush is gambling with future generations’ security in order to line the pockets of Wall Street and his wealthiest donors,” said Sánchez.

“Social Security is facing a challenge, not a crisis. This is a problem that demands long-term adjustments to fix. The fact that the President is rushing to drastically change the system shows that, when it comes to taking care of our citizens now and in the future, this President is all talk and no substance,” concluded Sánchez.

Congresswoman Sánchez is committed to working with other members of Congress, both Democrat and Republican, in order to make sure Social Security remains functioning well into the next century.
