Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) recently unveiled a new page on the website for the Second Congressional District of South Carolina where constituent input is being solicited on how to reduce the national debt. The suggestions will then be presented directly to the recently formed Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction:

“Tomorrow, the newly created Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction will conduct its first hearing. The 12-member bipartisan panel is tasked with finding ways to reduce the nation’s deficit by at least $1.2 trillion over the next decade. 

“This new page provides an avenue for constituents in the Second Congressional District to have their voice heard by the recently created ‘Super Committee.’ The non-partisan Congressional Budget office projects a $1.3 trillion deficit for this year. I would like to encourage constituents to get involved by going online and bringing attention to areas where this Committee can begin to cut the deficit. ”
