Senator Marco Rubio On Today’s Social Security And Medicare Trustees Report

May 13, 2011 | Press Releases

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio issued the following statement after the release of the Social Security and Medicare Trustees Report:

“Yesterday, sitting across from the President, I told him that we have to act now to reform Medicare and Social Security if we are to save these vital programs for future generations, my generation and current retirees like my mother. Today’s Social Security and Medicare Trustees Report confirms the urgency required and the basic reality that doing nothing will lead to benefit cuts and the bankruptcy of these programs and our nation. In light of this report, Democrats should finally put forth their own ideas. At the same time, as I told the President yesterday, this crisis demands his leadership. Let’s do what each generation before us has done, put aside the political demagoguery, and meet the challenge of our time by saving these programs for my mom, my generation and my children’s generation.”
