Sunset Legislation Is Clearly Outlined in Rick Scott's 12-Point America Rescue Plan
Federal programs include Social Security, Medicare, veteran benefits, housing and food supplementation programs, and more!
For anyone who questions President Biden’s statement in his SOTU address last night, claiming some Republicans want to sunset Social Security & Medicare, the source is linked here.
While serving as Chairman of the Senate Republican Campaign, Sen. Rick Scott published the 12-Point Rescue America Plan. In Point 6, he says, “All federal legislation sunsets in 5 years. If a law is worth keeping, Congress can pass it again.” Federal legislation includes Social Security, Medicare, veteran benefits, housing and food supplementation programs, etc.
Republicans consider many federal programs to be examples of “socialism.” If in power, do we really think the GOP would pass them again?
