They promised the tax cuts for corporations would pay for themselves. Then they blew a $2 trillion hole in the deficit. And now they’re coming for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. But don’t take my word for it. Listen to the Republicans themselves:

After years of struggling with paltry or nonexistent cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs), seniors who collect Social Security finally get a dose of good news: Benefits are increasing by 2.8% next year, ...

Social Security & Medicare has emerged as one of the top concerns in the mid-term elections. If you're over 40, when you close those curtains to vote, think about your hard-earned social security retirement and know that the GOP can't wait to get their hands on it. #VoteBlue

Ronald Reagan has a message for Mitch McConnell: Social Security (unlike the $2 trillion #GOPTaxScam) doesn't contribute ONE PENNY to the deficit.

In mid-October 2018, Facebook users shared an inaccurate meme asking “Were any of you aware that ALL the Democrats voted AGAINST the 2.8% Social Security cost of living increase?”: No Democrats, or an...

Heidi Cruz complains about not having a second home while more than half a million homeless Americans live and die on the streets and her husband strips health care and Social Security from everyone.
See more Tom Toles cartoons and blog posts: We are shocked that Trump’s tax-cut-for-the-rich didn’t pay for itself. Shocked. After not colluding with Russia, Trump is now not colluding with Saudi Arab...

MCCONNELL’S CLOSING ARGUMENT: — A vote for the @GOP is a vote to end pre-existing condition protections. — A vote for the @GOP is a vote to rip health care away from millions. — A vote for the @GOP is a vote to slash Social Security & Medicare to pay for corporate tax cuts.
Some elected officials have proposed cutting Social Security as part of deficit-reduction measures. The plan would change the way the cost-of-living increases are decided. Next year, Social Security w...
Make no mistake, @realDonaldTrump and Republicans want to take away (or raise the costs of) your pre-retirement Healthcare, limit your Social Security, and take away your Medicare.

About that tax cut....AND McConnell said 2 days ago that Rs plan to cut Medicare and Social Security to deal with the growing deficit it is causing. So wrong.

GOP want to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and bring back preexisting conditions non coverage and HRC opinions are problematic? NYtimes. Please. Stop.

Social Security benefits in particular are not exactly robust — the avg check is just $1,300/mo — and we know that the program plays a big role in helping seniors stay out of poverty. In fact, Social Security kept 27 million people out of poverty in 2017 https://www. vox.com/2018/9/12/1785 0426/census-poverty-income-2017-trump   …

Today, I asked @SNewtonUK whether she will apologise for the shocking injustice of ESA underpayments. Almost 200,000 disabled people have lost out on thousands of pounds of social security because of DWP errors. Proof of the hostile environment for disabled people in the DWP.

YOU ARE SCREWED!! Take McConnell at his word. He is telling America that if you vote for a Senate majority and he remains majority leader that you will lose health care and have big cuts to Social Security and Medicare. He will say America voted for this. VOTE DEM to stop him.
Republicans gave the 1% a huge $1.5 trillion tax cut which has exploded our deficit. Now they claim to repair this damage they need to cut Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid. Forget the bloated military budget of $818 billion and 1% who own 40% of our nation #ThursdayThoughts

For my friends in Texas, vote for @BetoORourke. He is an amazing leader and will make you proud in the Senate. He will stop McConnell from doing what he said he will do, such as take away your health care and cut Social Security and Medicare and other programs you rely upon. https:// twitter.com/BetoORourke/st atus/1052591443561205762   …

Yes, as long as "entitlement reform" means "stop bringing in poor immigrants to suck up Social Security, Medicaid & Medicare," I'm all for it! https:// twitter.com/DarrenJBeattie /status/1052759532013871104   …
My campaign has been 99.9% church visits, barbecues, and lawn fetes. We talk about Medicare. We talk about Social Security. We talk about families. And they’re running a guy out on bail who wants to serve in Congress. Yet they call us extreme? Bizarre.

Mitch McConnell thinks the biggest disappointment of his career was not being able to take away your Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. https://www. bloomberg.com/news/articles/ 2018-10-16/mcconnell-blames-entitlements-not-gop-for-rising-deficits   …

[email protected] won't answer the question about what he'd cut to pay for the $1.9 trillion tax cut. That's because the answer is he'd cut your Social Security and Medicare. #waelex

If you think it can't get any worse, guess again. The GOP was 1 vote away from throwing 32 million off healthcare. 1 vote. If the GOP keeps its majority, McConnell admits they'll try again & cut Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid after passing massive tax breaks for the top 1%.

Diseased Tortoise thinks Social Security is an entitlement. Correct me if I’m wrong, but if you pay into something, it’s both yours and you are entitled to it, yes? Oh I see, it’s because he wants to cut your social security, Medicare and Medicaid to pay for another tax scam.
