(New York, NY) The New York Young Republican Club, Inc. (NYYRC) commends President Bush on his 2006 State of the Union Address and praises the objectives he put forth in Tuesday’s speech.

The New York Young Republican supports the President’s call to break our dependence on foreign oil and research alternative energy sources. NYYRC President Dennis Cariello stated “President Bush is right, we are far too dependent on oil that comes from unstable areas of the world. It is a national imperative that we reduce our reliance on trade with such undemocratic regimes. In light of new technologies and the President’s commitment to alternative energy sources, I think we may one day reduce our dependence on oil from those countries that support terrorism and who reject our vision of human rights.”

The New York Young Republican Club continues to support the President’s plan for Iraq and applauds his statement to those calling for withdrawal of troops that “there is no peace in retreat.” President Cariello remarked “it is not in our best interest, or in the best interest of the Iraqi people, for us to pull out of an unstable Iraq. Do critics of this administration think Iraq would be better off if we pulled out now and al-Zarqawi found a way to take over the country?”

President Bush proposed a bipartisan commission to study the impact that aging Baby Boomers will have on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. President Cariello commented “The impact that the Baby Boomer generation will have on Federal entitlement programs is an important issue that cannot be ignored. I am appalled that the Democrats cheered their failure to enact Bush’s Social Security proposal last year when they have not offered a viable alternative for sustaining the system through future generations. While I remain hopeful that any social security reform will include personal savings accounts, Congress should immediately act on the President’s proposal to have a bipartisan commission study this crisis.”

The New York Young Republican Club looks forward to seeing President Bush take action to implement these proposals and encourages the New York Congressional delegation to support the President’s agenda.

The New York Young Republican Club, Inc., is a not-for-profit political organization that exists to bring Republicans aged 18-40 together to discuss the Republican Party platform and aid the Republican in the education of the public about the Republican agenda and the promotion of Republican candidates for office.
