Honoring Social Security's 75th Anniversary

Press Release

Mr. WILSON of Ohio. Mr. Speaker, next month we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Social Security. As we mark this important anniversary, I believe it's important to reflect on the millions of seniors that have been helped by Social Security over the years.

I have met with hundreds of Ohioans recently, and they are concerned about Social Security's future. The message to me has always been clear. They don't want to undermine any part of Social Security, and certainly not with privatization. They oppose any measure that would jeopardize the safety net that Social Security provides them in retirement, and I agree.

It's true that Social Security is facing some real challenges. However, I strongly believe that Congress can focus on keeping these promises to our seniors instead of putting the entire Social Security at risk, leaving it to the whims of Wall Street.
