Speaker Pelosi-AN EXTREME MAGA Commitment to Slash Seniors' Medicare & Social Security

Speaker Pelosi has screen captured some details from a Keven McCartthy/GOP website detailing the new version of the 1994 GOP Contract with America that is being used for 2022. This new version of the Contract with America is truly sickening. The new GOP scam is called Commitment to America and this plan is truly sad


https://www.speaker.gov/newsroom/92122-1

The extreme MAGA Commitment to America promises to repeal the lower drug prices Democrats delivered for America’s seniors as part of the Inflation Reduction Act, handing hundreds of billions of dollars back to Republicans’ pals in Big Pharma.

Meanwhile, the overwhelming majority of House Republicans have explicitly called for going even further by gutting Medicare and Social Security:

158 out of 212 House Republicans, including top GOP leadership Members Whip Scalise and Chair Stefanik, have called for slashing and privatizing Social Security, raising the retirement age to 70 and ending Medicare as we know it as part of the Republican Study Committee FY2023 budget.
Top GOP Senator Rick Scott continues to push Senate Republicans’ plan to terminate Social Security and Medicare after five years.
Senior GOP Senator Ron Johnson called for putting Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block for Republicans to slash at will every year.
193 House Republicans voted against limiting seniors’ and families’ co-pay for insulin to $35 per month, with the Affordable Insulin Now Act.

2. House GOP Releases 'Commitment to America' Platform -- And Then Takes It Offline

The GOP Commitment to America is a horrible plan


https://www.huffpost.com/entry/kevin-mccarthy-commitment-to-america_n_632b7247e4b087fae6fbd777?utm_campaign=share_twitter&ncid=engmodushpmg00000004

House Republicans are apparently set to announce a policy platform that criticizes Democrats’ popular prescription drug cost reductions and opens the door to Social Security and Medicare cuts, according to a document that leaked online Wednesday.

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) was supposed to announce the party’s “Commitment to America” on Friday, but instead, a multi-page document bearing that name briefly appeared online Wednesday on McCarthy’s website. Approximately an hour after New York Times reporter Annie Karni tweeted it out, the part of McCarthy’s site with the document was locked down and accessible only with a password.

It’s not clear if the one-page document was the entirety of what Republicans plan to release or just a summary or a draft.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) communications director knocked the GOP platform on Twitter with a series of screenshots from the now protected website.

McCarthy claimed to be unaware of the apparent foul-up. “I haven’t seen it,” McCarthy told HuffPost on Wednesday afternoon.

Here is a a link to the GOP new "Contract with America" plan which they are calling Commitment to America

3. This is beyond a political party, the GOP is now a mental condition.

I hope Americans are FINALLY waking up to what is going on as fascists plan a full take over of the US.
