    Sanders: Donald Trump and GOP want to cut Social Security. We should expand it

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2018/09/23/bernie-sanders-expand-social-security-tax-millionaires-billionaires-column/1370048002/

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and I, along with Democratic Reps. John Larson of Connecticut and Debbie Dingell of Michigan, have formed the Expand Social Security Caucus to do exactly that. Nineteen senators and 140 House members have already added their names, making it one of the largest caucuses in Congress.

    But our pathological lying President Donald Trump now claims that Democrats “are going to hurt your Social Security so badly, and they are killing you on Medicare.”

    Really? That’s funny. It was Trump who proposed a budget this year that our Democratic Budget Committee analysis shows would cut $72 billion from Social Security, $500 billion from Medicare and more than $1 trillion from Medicaid over a 10-year period.

    And his party is all in. Following the passage of Trump’s $1.5 trillion tax cut for the wealthy and large corporations, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said: “We’re going to have to get back next year at entitlement reform, which is how you tackle the debt and the deficit.”
