Cut Medicare & Social Security? Not on my watch. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz


"Rubio tells a secret: After giving a tax cut to the rich, GOP will cut Social Security and Medicare"
-- Sun-Sentinel, 12/1/2017
This is big, David.
In a moment of rare truth, Marco Rubio admitted that after cutting taxes for the rich, they will move on to making "structural changes" to Medicare and Social Security.
"Structural changes" of course, being Washington-speak for "cutting" Medicare and Social Security.

I will fight with everything I have to protect Medicare and Social Security. But I need you in this fight. Let Republicans know that we will not stand for cuts.

It's bad enough that the disastrous Republican tax plan is inches away from becoming law. If the final version is anything like what the Senate passed, that law could raise taxes on middle class families and rip away health care from millions of Americans.
And of course under the Trump/GOP plan, billionaires and corporations would make out like bandits.
In order to pay for these outregeous tax breaks, Republicans are targeting seniors and those most vulnerable among us to pay for those expenses.
I have four words for them: Not on my watch.
...demand Republicans stay away from Medicare and Social Security.

Thank you.
Debbie
