As Social Security turned 87 this weekend, the DNC is making sure Wisconsin seniors know that Republicans have plans that would jeopardize the popular program
The campaign includes digital video ads targeting Wisconsin seniors on YouTube. The ads are the most recent effort by the DNC to highlight various plans put forward by the Republican Study Committee, NRSC Chair Rick Scott, Senator Ron Johnson, and others in the GOP to cut Social Security and Medicare. In May, the DNC launched an ad campaign hitting Rick Scott’s plan that could end the Social Security guarantee altogether.
Nearly 1.3 million Wisconsinites rely on their Social Security benefits for everything from groceries to rent, and 1.2 million depend on Medicare for their health coverage – without these programs they’d see their out-of-pocket costs on health care and daily expenses go up. While Republicans are threatening to cut these hard-earned benefits, President Biden and Democrats are poised to cut costs for seniors instead, as Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act is set to lower costs and cap out of pocket prescription drug costs for seniors, as well as make Medicare more financially secure.
