Together with.a smattering of turncoat Democrats, the Republicans are ramming through a fast-track commission to cut Social Security benefits as well as Medicare, via the so-called TRUST act introduced earlier this year, by opportunisticaly sticking it into the GOP’s alleged COVID relief bill.
At Common Dreams, Alex Lawson, executive director of Social Security Works, writes:
“These politicians, who are plotting to use this public health crisis as a vehicle to ram through cuts to our earned benefits, are scum. The American people will never forget that they used the worst global emergency of modern times to try and steal our Social Security and Medicare. We will never forgive them for this, and will dedicate our resources to defeating them wherever they are.”
