Hate of the Union: The REAL Reason Biden and Democrats Continue Gaslighting About Medicare and Social Security
The simplistic answer to the ongoing lies about Republicans and their perspectives on social security and Medicare is that it scares elderly voters. The real reason is far worse than that.
The vast majority of Republicans on Capitol Hill either oppose cuts to Medicare and Social Security, or they avoid the issue like the plague. It SHOULD be an issue that the "fiscally conservative" party talks about more, but Democrats have made it such a toxic topic that President Trump, Speaker Kevin McCarthy, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are all in agreement that the GOP will not touch it.
Why, then, do Democrats continue to claim Republicans are going after the two massive entitlement expenditures? At Tuesday night's State of the Union speech, Joe Biden continued to gaslight over the issue. Thankfully, some Republicans pushed back. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene went so far as to scream out "liar" when Biden brought it up.
Biden at least acknowledged that it's not "most" Republicans. He said he had the receipts in the form of a proposal that was sent to him, likely by a handful of Republican lawmakers who rightly pointed out that Medicare and Social Security are unsustainable if reforms are not made immediately. But it's toxic... and that's the point.
Why do even lucid and otherwise fiscally responsible Republicans shy away from the important issue? It's because Democrats desperately NEED them to fail. They NEED the burden of entitlements to cripple American taxpayers and lead this nation towards the inevitable forced adoption of Modern Monetary Theory.
There are only two possible ways to continue Medicare and Social Security. Either we make massive cuts across the board or we print money to cover the expenses. That's it. The former will be unpopular among lawmakers who know cuts are the easiest way for them to lose elections. The latter would be pure devastation that prompts a complete economic collapse as more nations abandon the U.S. Dollar as the world reserve currency.
I talked about all of this on today's episode of The JD Rucker Show. I referenced this article below by Mary Margaret Olohan from Daily Signal.
Republicans Erupt, Call Biden ‘LIAR’ Over Medicare Claims
House Republicans booed President Joe Biden on Tuesday evening over the president’s claim that the GOP wants to cut Medicare and Social Security.
“Instead of making the wealthy pay their fair share, some Republicans want Medicare and Social Security to sunset every five years,” Biden said. “That means if Congress doesn’t vote to keep them, those programs will go away.”
“Other Republicans say if we don’t cut Social Security and Medicare, they’ll let America default on its debt for the first time in our history,” he added. “I won’t let that happen.”
His remarks elicited a strong reaction from the assembled lawmakers—many of whom can be heard loudly booing.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., who had leapt to her feet, can be seen giving the president a thumbs-down.
“Liar,” she yelled.
The House Republicans’ Twitter account similarly denounced Biden’s claim, noting that Speaker Kevin McCarthy has said that “cuts to Medicare and Social Security, they are off the table.”
“Joe Biden is LIAR,” the House Republicans account said on Tuesday evening. And the Republican National Committee’s Twitter account reminded users that “a decade ago, Biden repeatedly stressed the importance of NEGOTIATING the debt limit.”
And former President Donald Trump similarly slammed Biden in a Truth Social post, saying, “He’s lying so much about Social Security, Medicare, and so many other things!”
“Social Security and Medicare are a lifeline for millions of seniors,” Biden continued. “Americans have been paying into them with every single paycheck since they started working. So tonight, let’s all agree to stand up for seniors. Stand up and show them we will not cut Social Security. We will not cut Medicare.”
“Those benefits belong to the American people,” Biden said. “They earned them. If anyone tries to cut Social Security, I will stop them. And if anyone tries to cut Medicare, I will stop them. I will not allow them to be taken away. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not ever.”

AFTER LAST NIGHT
He gave us angry old man Biden shouting for reasons known only to himself. He gave us phony old man Biden with his obnoxious stage whisper. He slurred his words like a drunken sailor. The White House has posted the text of his remarks “as prepared for delivery” so you might be able to ascertain what he was attempting to say. Both as prepared and as delivered it was a bizarre speech.
15 Whoppers Joe Biden Told During State Of The Union Address
Three years ago, the unemployment rate was at 3.5 percent. Today, Biden reminded us that it was at a historic low of 3.4 percent. More than 30 million people lost their jobs to Covid lockdowns. Biden claims to have “created” 12 million jobs during the past two years. The one big difference is that the labor participation rate still hasn’t recovered to pre-Covid numbers. It’s great that people are working again. But millions fewer are in the market for jobs.

And Congress has been stealing from SS for years. They have their own system that pays better. Many die before they can collect, and SS keeps it. At 74 I could not live on the amount I get which is below average, we grew up on lower wages. Military pay in 58-78 stunk big time and still does. $78 dollars a month as an E1, BAQ was 1 rate that covered the wife and all children. The last pay raise Military had was a 3% increase, which Champus ate up. Think Commissary or Exchange are cheaper, guess again, higher. Even gas is higher on base than off. Biden told this current batch to go on SNAP. Got news for him that many of the lower ranks are already on WIC/SNAP. Base housing is for the higher ranks. So the lower ranks rent in bad areas of a city. And work a 2nd job when not on deployment. The Wife works too if possible.
