Bernie Sanders Warns That Republicans Are Coming To Kill Social Security And Medicare After The Tax Bill

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is warning that after Republicans cut taxes for the wealthiest Americans, their next move is going to be to attack Social Security and Medicare.

Sanders tweeted:

Sanders was correct. The tax cuts for the rich are the first step in the Republican plan. After the tax cuts cause the deficit to explode, Republicans are going to cry about the deficit and move to kill Social Security and Medicare. Privatization or elimination of these programs is what Republicans like Paul Ryan have had in mind for years. The passage of the tax cuts gives Republicans the pretense that they need to attack the social safety net.

Bernie Sanders was 100% on the money. Trump and the Republicans are coming for Social Security and Medicare next, which is why the tax cut for the wealthiest Americans must be stopped dead in its tracks.
