Seriously…the media has to do better than this. Trump is definitely cutting Social Security benefits. His claim that “it’s not really Social Security” is bullshit and it will hit his supporters the hardest, as they receive the most benefits from the Social Security programs he’s cutting, like Social Security Disability Insurance. This is propaganda at work and our media must do more to make sure they aren’t spreading the lies.
A number of usually reliable reporters were duped by White House spin that President Donald Trump’s draconian budget proposal for fiscal year 2018 to slash spending for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) was not a violation of his major campaign pledge to protect Social Security from cuts.
