President Biden calls out Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) for proposing sunsetting all government programs every five years.
BIDEN: “The guy in charge of electing Republicans in the Senate, Rick Scott of Florida, proposed the plan. I wish I had enough copies to hand, but go online and look at it. I really mean this is serious because they're going to make it hard for you to believe. Proposed a plan requiring Congress to vote on the future of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid every five years, it's up for reauthorization. And I want to remind you, you pay for your Social Security, every single paycheck from the time you're a kid. You paid for it. So every five years, Congress gets to vote change cut reducer a limited the entirety of Social Security, and it's not just so security. Everything. Senator Scott wants everything and the federal budget to be up for five years, nothing permanent, nothing. That includes Veteran Benefits, Pell Grants, everything else. Look it up. It's hard to believe. I would think I'm exaggerating if I didn’t look at it myself. Now along comes, Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsin. As my mother would say, God love him, he thinks five years is too long to wait. He wants to put devote Social Security Medicare on the chopping block every single year. Let me remind you all, again, you paid for Social Security, you paid for Medicare. It's taken out of every single one of your paychecks. These guys never give up. Well, guess what? We're not going to give up either.”
