Trump has more cruel plans for his ‘forgotten people’ in rural America


Impeached President Donald Trump swore in a tweet on Saturday that “We will not be touching your Social Security or Medicare in Fiscal 2021 Budget.” He reiterated Monday in a meeting with Republican governors: “We’re not touching Medicare. […] We’re not touching Social Security.” Which is, of course, a lie. A disproportionate number of those Republican governors represent the people that will be disproportionately hit by Trump’s proposed cuts to the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. That’s rural people predominantly living in red states who would be subjected to onerous, often insurmountable barriers to maintaining the modest SSDI payments they get every month.
