President Joe Biden Delivered A State Of The Union Speech Last Week That Was Filled With Optimism, National Pride, And A Call For Unity Between All Americans. Additionally, Biden Enumerated His Legislative Achievments For Veterans, Seniors, The Middle Class, Job Creation And A Decrease In The Deficit By 1.7 Trillion Dollars. Sitting Behind Him Was A Smirking Kevin McCarthy And Screaming Rudely From The Audience Was The Crass Embarrassment Marjorie Taylor Green. – Baby Boomer Resistance: A Pro Democracy Blog
Biden made fools and liars out of the Republican party at the State of the Union. He informed Americans of Florida Senator Rick Scott’s plan to “sunset” Social Security and Medicare. This means every 1-5 years those programs would be subject to be cut or benefits decreased based on the whim of Congress. Republicans melted down and yelled and screamed when Biden revealed the facts. Maga republicans yelled out “liar” at President Biden despite the reality that Scott’s plan has been circulated to the public in printed pamphlets and admitted to by Scott in interviews. The majority of the GOP Congress screamed and moaned as Biden revealed Scott’s proposal. Other Senators like Ron Jihnson and Mike Lee are on public record talking about cutting Medicare and Social Security.
Republicans are once again relying on their base’s ignorance of facts and tendency to easily believe a lie. They wrongly refer to Social Security and Medicare as ” entitlement” programs while democrats accurately refer to them as “earned” benefit programs. Americans pay into these programs from the first paycheck they ever earn.
Biden got the GOP Congress so upset when he revealed the threat their policies pose to these popular programs, he led them publicly to applaud and declare cutting any part of those programs is off the table. Biden showed his political savvy, his policy experience and his dedication to seniors, veterans, the disabled and the middle class in this exchange about Social Security and Medicare. The republicans, in contrast, are represented by loud-mouth, unqualified candidates from districts who need and devour the benefits of the democrats policies.
