Presidential Quotes

George H. W. Bush
Portrait of President Bush

"And there's one thing I hope we will all be able to agree on. It's about our commitments. I'm talking about Social Security. To every American out there on Social Security, to every American supporting that system today, and to everyone counting on it when they retire, we made a promise to you, and we are going to keep it." - January 31, 1990

(President Bush filed his own claim for Social Security and Medicare in January 1993--see photo.)
