Ron Johnson Continues Crusade To Cut Social Security and Medicare
MADISON, Wis. – In response to Ron Johnson’s latest policy paper advocating cuts to Social Security and Medicare, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Senate Communication Advisor Philip Shulman released the following statement:
“Ron Johnson has made clear yet again that he wants Congress to be able to cut Social Security and Medicare, programs that Wisconsinites have paid into for decades so they could retire without worrying about paying their bills. In November, Wisconsinites are going to make clear they’re done with Ron Johnson’s threats to Social Security and Medicare and will retire him.”
Johnson has called Social Security a “Ponzi Scheme,” even going so far as to suggest raising the retirement age, and supported legislation that would force cuts to programs like Social Security.
- In August, Johnson argued that Social Security and Medicare should be subject to cuts and that the former should have been put into the stock market.
