Gardner & Trump’s Tax Cut for the Wealthy Will Deplete Social Security By 2023, Leaving Seniors Out To Dry
Gardner has voted to raise the eligibility age for Social Security, privatize Medicare, & cut monthly benefit payments for aging Coloradans
Denver, CO – After Senator Cory Gardner failed to deliver COVID relief, President Trump signed executive orders to give the wealthy a tax cut that could “permanently deplete” Social Security funding by 2023, with “no ability to pay… benefits thereafter,” leaving our aging Coloradans out to dry. No Comment Cory has refused to stand up to Trump’s reckless attack on Social Security and Medicare, hard-earned benefits which are lifelines for seniors.
Gardner’s newest attacks on Social Security and Medicare come as no surprise, as he has left seniors behind his entire career in Washington, voting to increase the eligibility age for the earned benefits programs, pushing to voucherize Medicare, and slashing monthly benefits.
Trump’s executive order also slashes emergency unemployment insurance, leaves schools to fend for themselves, and omits any funding for small businesses. Coloradans are crying out for help, but clearly Gardner isn’t listening.
