Watch: Joe Biden blasts GOP 'Plan to Save America' as a scheme to kill Social Security and Medicare
President Joe Biden on Tuesday railed against United States Senator Rick Scott's (R-Florida) draconian Plan to Rescue America that he introduced in February which would raise taxes on the middle class and outlines how he envisions dismantling Social Security and Medicare.
Scott is the head of the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee.
"I won't read through all of it, but it says, 'all federal legislation sunsets in five years. If it is worth keeping, Congress can pass it again,'" Biden recited verbatim during a press event at the White House.
Biden then clarified what Scott's extreme proposal really means.
"Translated: if you don't vote to keep it, you don't get it. Now, what do you think they're gonna do when the House Budget Committee starts talking about costs of Medicare and Social Security and why we can't afford it?" he noted of a possible Republican majority after the November midterm elections.
"Folks, you know, the senator in charge of reelecting United States senators, Senator Scott, has proposed a plan where Social Security and Medicare every five years will be on the chopping block. It means every five years, you either cut it, reduce it, or completely eliminate it – Social Security and Medicare," Biden added, emphasizing that "you've been paying into Social Security since the first job as a teenager and you get your paycheck."
