The President of the United States of America Joe Biden says “Congressional Republicans want to cut Social Security and Medicare.”
In his televised remarks, Biden not “They’re even saying they’ll shut down the government and let America default on its debts if we won’t cooperate with the cuts. Talk about irresponsible.”
“Some of you are on Social Security. Or your parents or grandparents are.
They earned it with every single paycheck – from the day they started working.
Republicans in Congress want to put it on the chopping block.
“Let’s be crystal clear on what repealing the Inflation Reduction Act means.
The power we gave Medicare to negotiate lower prescription drug prices? Gone.
The $2,000 cap on prescription drugs for seniors? Gone.
The $35-a-month cap on insulin for folks on Medicare? Gone.
Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act, if Big Pharma tries to raise drug prices faster than inflation, they’ll have to write a check to Medicare to cover the difference.
Instead of that money going to drug companies, it’ll go into your pockets in the form of lower drug prices.
You’ve been paying into Social Security your whole life. You earned it.
Now, Republicans in Congress want to cut it.
Who the hell do they think they are?
