Trump Budget Cuts Programs for Poor While Sparing Many Older People
Further exploration of lying about S.S.D.I.:[Sharon Parrott, a senior fellow at the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities] also pointed out that as a candidate, Mr. Trump promised not to cut Social Security, but on Monday he proposed to cut millions from Social Security Disability Insurance, a program that she described as “central to the Social Security system.”
Mr. Mulvaney said the president was keeping his promises.
“He said, ‘I promised people on the campaign trail that I would not touch their retirement and I would not touch Medicare.’ And we don’t do it,” Mr. Mulvaney said of the president. “If you ask, 999 people out of 1,000 would tell you that Social Security disability is not part of Social Security. Old age retirement — that they think of as Social Security.”
“Able-bodied” people and people who are not “truly disabled” need to go back to work, he said.
And if anyone cares, Afrika:Republican leaders characterize the program and its recipients
in ways that do not hold up to scrutiny.
