Bernie 2020 national co-chair Nina Turner published a new CNBC oped reviewing Joe Biden and Mike Bloomberg’s efforts to cut Social Security — the latter of which was explored in a new CNN report. Turner compares Biden and Bloomberg’s record with Bernie’s successful work blocking those cuts.
Turner notes that Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly said he wants to work with the next Democratic president to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Here is an excerpt:
Trump, however, is not the only reason we should be concerned about the future of Social Security: Bloomberg News’ congressional correspondent recently reported that Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell “told me he hopes to work with the next Democratic president to trim Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid.”
All of this underscores an important reality: to both defeat Trump in this election and strengthen Social Security, we must choose Bernie Sanders as our Democratic nominee, because he has an unwavering record fighting against Social Security cuts -- and fighting for an expansion of the program.
Unfortunately, not every candidate in this race has such a track record.
