Matsui dies, Pelosi gets in a dig about Social Security:
Pelosi mourned the loss of Matsui on Sunday, calling him a dear friend, respected leader and dedicated family man. Matsui is survived by his wife, Doris; son, Brian; daughter-in-law, Amy; and granddaughter, Anna.
“In recent days, Bob spoke often of his parents, whose fortitude during his youth and grace during his adulthood shaped so much of his respect for America’s seniors and his resolve to preserve their retirement security,” Pelosi said in a statement. “With dignity, integrity and passion, Bob Matsui served his family, his community and his country. He will be sorely missed and long remembered.”
