Oregon Senate Bill Urges Congress To Oppose Privatizing Social Security
Salem, Oregon - Oregon state senators weighed in on the Social Security debate today, approving a bill that encourages the U.S. Congress to oppose efforts to privatize Social Security. The Senate approved Senate Memorial 1, which also asks Congress to repay Social Security trust funds and to enact reforms that will ensure continuation of income protection.
"This sends a loud and clear message to Washington D.C., that Oregonians are opposed to the current administration's risk-laden proposal to replace Social Security with private accounts," said Sen. Frank Shields. "Even the president recognizes that his plan does nothing to strengthen the long-term stability of our Social Security system."
Hey Frank Shields, if you want to have a vote on the Social Security issue then get elected to the US Senate. As a state senator maybe you should just stick to coming up with a realistic budget. That actually is your job.
