We Can’t Wait Coalition Applauds Senate Confirmation of Governor Martin O’Malley

December 19, 2023

WASHINGTON, DC – Following the Senate confirmation of former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley to the position of Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, the We Can’t Wait Coalition issued the following statement:

“Today marks a new chapter for the SSA, and we look forward to working with Commissioner O’Malley to modernize the Social Security Administration to make it more accessible and accountable to the American people. We believe that Commissioner O’Malley is committed to delivering on the promise of Social Security and delivering results for American workers who depend on SSDI as a lifeline. The We Can’t Wait Coalition stands ready to work with Congress and the SSA to pass the bipartisan We Can’t Wait Act (S. 3400) to end the burdensome five-month exclusion period that is leaving disabled Americans in the cold. We are encouraged and hopeful that Commissioner O’Malley will work tirelessly for the disability community.”
