Wyden Statement on Change in Leadership at Social Security

Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released a statement after President Biden removed Andrew Saul as the commissioner of the Social Security Administration:

“Every president should choose the personnel that will best carry out their vision for the country. To fulfill President Biden’s bold vision for improving and expanding Social Security, he needs his people in charge,” Wyden said. “I will work closely with the president to confirm a new commissioner as swiftly as possible to lead this critical agency.”
