TRUMP WATCH

Trump Threatens Social Security in Executive OrderAs we celebrate the 85th anniversary of President Franklin D. Roosevelt signing the Social Security Act into law today, Donald Trump is threatening the program, which provides income and security to nearly 2.4 million Ohioans.

“Donald Trump is breaking his promise to ‘save our Social Security’ with a proposal that ‘is a threat to Social Security no matter how he casts it,'” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “This is not the first time Trump has attacked Social Security. Since he’s been in office, Trump has proposed and supported cutting Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Trump’s last budget proposal cut Social Security programs by $26 billion and slashed funding for the Social Security Administration, which helps retirees and people with disabilities get the support they need and have earned.

“After 85 years, Social Security still works for the American people. Joe Biden knows it provides peace of mind and the ability to retire with dignity for millions of Americans, and he will fight to preserve and strengthen it. He would never undermine the Social Security trust fund, as Donald Trump is trying to do. Trump promised to protect Social Security, but Ohio seniors and families are paying the price for Trump’s broken promises.”

OHIO DEMS IN THE HEADLINES

Ohio Democrats Call for Cohesive Back-to-School Plan

This week state Rep. Phil Robinson criticized Gov. Mike DeWine on the lack of a statewide plan to address school reopenings.

“Instead of rolling out a statewide, back-to-school plan, the governor continues to shift the difficult decisions to the school districts who then shift the decisions to the parents to somehow choose between their child’s health, their own health and their employment,” Robinson said.

“What is actually happening as a result of no statewide intervention is we are deepening the economic divides in our society, perpetuating a system of haves and have nots. Those who have the means to do remote learning and keep their children healthy, can. Those working parents who rely on in-person instruction so they can hold down a job, cannot.”
