VAN DREW MAKES CLEAR THAT HE WILL NEVER SUPPORT CUTS TO SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE
January 26, 2023 — Congressman Van Drew responded to claims from the Left that Republicans will support cuts to Social Security and Medicare and made absolutely clear that this is unequivocally false, and he would never support cutting these programs’ funding.
“Despite false claims being perpetuated by Democrats and this administration, I will absolutely never vote for a bill that would make any type of cuts to Social Security or Medicare,” said Congressman Van Drew. “Republicans have made a promise to the American people to cut wasteful spending and get our budget back on track. Wasteful spending that includes funding gender studies in Pakistan, sending money overseas to protect foreign borders but not our own, and giving money to the World Health Organization (WHO) that continually lied to the world about the COVID-19 pandemic. That does not include cutting funding for one of our country’s most vulnerable populations.
“When it comes to reining in spending, I want to be clear: making cuts to Social Security or Medicare, programs that hard-working Americans have spent their lives paying their fair share towards, is something that will never even be a consideration. I indisputably support these programs regardless of what the mainstream media and this administration portrays to the public.”
