Press Release
Great strides were made in the War on Terror and Domestic Agenda
Today, Congressman Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) made the following remarks on the House Floor: “Mr. Speaker, over the last year, our nation has experienced extraordinary successes. The American military has fought a victorious battle in Iraq to overthrow one of history’s most despotic regimes, and are continuing today to protect the American people in the War on Terror. Thanks to their valor the world is safer knowing that Saddam Hussein is no longer a threat,” said Congressman Wilson. “In the last year, as our economy struggled to work its way out of recession, Congress brought tax relief to American families and businesses at the right time to get this economy moving again. In the last few months, stock markets are up, jobs have increased, and our GDP has soared. “We were also successful in bringing prescription drug coverage to our seniors, health savings plans to restore hope in the future of Medicare, and we brought further reforms to education to ensure our children receive the best chance for success. “Tonight we will hear our President’s State of the Union address, and while we face challenges ahead, the President has many successes to celebrate over the last year. “In conclusion, God bless our troops and we will never forget September the 11th,” said Congressman Wilson. ###
