Johnson Reaction to the State of the Union

January 25, 2011

Washington, DC – Ways and Means Social Security Subcommittee Chairman Sam Johnson issued the following reaction to the President’s State of the Union:

“We must secure Social Security’s future for its own sake, on a bipartisan basis with the full support of the President.  I am committed to protecting benefits for today’s seniors, those nearing retirement, and those who count on Social Security the most, without raising taxes.  It’s time to move past talk to action.  The Subcommittee on Social Security will soon begin hearings to find lasting solutions to strengthen the program.”
