Politics: DEMOCRATS MAKE GOLDEN PROMISE TO DEFEND SOCIAL SECURITY

"If we can't get it done this year, I'm going to try next year. And if we can't get it done next year, I'm going to try the year after."

President George W. Bush, June 27, 2006


House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid led a rally Thursday with Members of Congress and hundreds of seniors and concerned citizens in a continuing effort to Protect Americans' Social Security from the relentless attempts by President Bush and the Republican Congress to privatize Social Security. Their risky privatization scheme would slash benefits and add trillions of dollars in additional debt. Despite the victory of the American people over the Republican privatization plan last year, the dismantling of Social Security's guaranteed benefit is still a very real priority on the President's agenda. With health care costs and pharmaceutical prices climbing, Democrats will do whatever it takes to keep Republicans from denying American seniors the retirement secirity they've earned.

That is why Democrats from both Houses of Congress are signing the Golden Promise, a pledge to oppose Republican efforts to privatize Social Security. America's retirees will not be abandoned.
