House Republicans introduce bill to slash Social Security, daring Trump to keep promise to save it
- Trump repeatedly promised in his campaign to leave Social Security alone, to make sure that the program would remain untouched for seniors and future retirees. House Republicans either didn't believe him, or figure they can roll him and push through legislation to undermine the most popular and effective government program in the nation's history. That's what Rep. Sam Johnson's (R-TX)â€”Chairman of the Social Security Subcommittee of the House Ways and Means Committeeâ€”legislation would do. He calls it a "Plan to Permanently Save Social Security," but since it's coming from a Republican, you already know not to believe that.
