As we get closer to the 2022 midterm elections, politicians and those around them need to make smart decisions to ensure that they either maintain their position or win their election.
Possibly cutting SSI & Medicare benefits in five years is not a smart decision.
“Force Congress to issue a report every year telling the public what they plan to do when Social Security and Medicare go bankrupt.”
Of course, Senator Scott is a member of the GOP from Florida (why would he not be?).
Historically, Americans of a certain age are known to vote in larger numbers than younger citizens. If these benefits are cut, how many of our elders would be on the streets and without access to medical care.
Potentially cutting off these programs is practically handing the Democrats a win in the fall. If they want to shoot themselves in the figurative foot, that’s their decision.
