CNN reports, "President Joe Biden on Thursday made a forceful argument against Republicans by highlighting his support for Social Security and Medicare, an appeal to the senior-rich Sunshine State as he makes moves toward a 2024 reelection announcement. "Biden took his State of the Union argument to the home state of GOP Sen. Rick Scott, seizing a political opportunity to go after Scott’s proposal to sunset federal legislation – including Social Security and Medicare – every five years, and poking at Floridian and former President Donald Trump, who has announced his 2024 candidacy."" "Joe Biden is confused… to suggest that this means I want to cut Social Security or Medicare is a lie, and is a dishonest move," Senator Scott. Scott is confused. Biden never said Scott wanted to cut SS or Medicare. This is the old, worn-out trick by Republicans. Invent what your opponent said, then criticize him based on what you created. White House aides placed a copy of Scott’s proposal on every seat for Biden’s Tampa event. “The very idea the senator from Florida wants to put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block every five years I find to be somewhat outrageous. So outrageous that you might not even believe it,” he said, pulling out a pamphlet detailing Scott’s plan." ABC reports, "On Wednesday, Biden showed the crowd proposals and repeated comments from Republican Sens. Rick Scott, Ron Johnson and Mike Lee -- calling them out by name. "I remind you that Rick Scott from Florida, the guy who ran the U.S. Senate campaign, has a plan -- I got his brochure right here," Biden said, holding up Scott's brochure. "Here's what he says in his plan ... He says 'All federal legislation sunsets every five years. If a law is worth keeping Congress can pass it again.'" "Senator Ron Johnson on Social Security and Medicare, quote, 'We should transfer everything. So, we have to consider everything every year." "Biden provided a video from 2010, circulating on social media, in which he said Lee floats cuts to the programs." Former Vice President Mike Pence, a possible 2024 Republican presidential candidate, has voiced support for Social Security privatization.
