Republican plan to kill Social Security

“Senator Ron Johnson wants Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block every year,” Biden wrote. “He’s the same guy who said if Republicans get control of Congress, they’ll try to get rid of the [Affordable Care Act] again — denying insurance to people with preexisting conditions. These guys never stop.”

Johnson said on a radio show this month that Social Security and Medicare shouldn’t be “mandatory” programs and should be subject to yearly renewal decisions in Congress. Johnson’s comments are in line with the GOP Platform  “An 11-Point Plan to Rescue America,”.  Mandela Barnes, Johnson’s Democratic opponent, accused him of “want[ing] to strip seniors of the benefits they’ve worked their entire lives for.” – Market Realist

Republicans block insulin price caps in the Democrats’ Inflation Reduction ActWhy? Follow the money.

Republican senators voted down a cap on the price of insulin in the private market, removing it from Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act. Democrats had tried to preserve the provision to cap insulin costs at $35 for private insurers, but that vote failed due to Republican opposition. The legislation, however, still includes a $35 copay cap on the price of insulin for people 65 and older on Medicare. – NBC
