Camp, Herger, Johnson Statement on Social Security and Medicare Trustees Report

May 13, 2011

Washington, DC – Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI), Health Subcommittee Chairman Wally Herger (R-CA) and Social Security Subcommittee Chairman Sam Johnson (R-TX) made the following statement after the release of the Social Security and Medicare Trustees Report.

“Today’s report makes it clearer than ever that doing nothing is not an option.  The failure to act means current, as well as future beneficiaries, will face significant cuts even sooner than previously estimated.  We call on the President and all of our colleagues in the House and Senate to act now and take the long overdue steps to strengthen these vital programs.  It’s what Americans expect of us, it’s what taxpayers demand and it’s what our children deserve.”
