Reality Check: Trump on Hillary Clinton s desire to cut Social Security


At a assemblage this anniversary in Pennsylvania, Donald Trump pulled what he said was this asset from afraid excerpts of a accent that Hillary Clinton had accustomed to Wall Street bankers. The speeches additionally appearance that Crooked Hillary supports acid Medicare and Social Security benefits, one added archetype of how Hillary Clinton s accessible position is a lie, Trump said of the animadversion that were appear in afraid emails of Clinton attack admiral that were appear by WikiLeaks. She wants to beating the hell out of your Social Security. She wants to beating the hell out of your Medicare and Medicaid. And I am activity to save them. The afraid emails do accept excerpts of speeches Clinton gave in which she batten agreeably of the access taken by Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles who co-chaired a agency to appear up with means to abate the federal debt. So, you know, the Simpson-Bowles framework and the big elements of it were right, she told a acquisition sponsored by Morgan Stanley. The specifics can be adjourned and argued over. But you ve got to do all three. You accept to arrest spending, you accept to accept able revenues and you accept to accept growth. And I anticipate we are acute abundant to bulk out how to do that. Among the recommendations that Simpson and Bowles fabricated was a plan to bank up the Social Security Trust Fund. The plan included gradually accretion bulk taxes on aerial earners, a restructuring of allowances to access the bulk of retirement payments for lower assets workers while abbreviating the bulk for aerial assets ones. The plan additionally alleged for gradually accretion the age a being could draw abounding Social Security allowances from 66 which it was in 2010 back the recommendations were fabricated to 69 in 2075.Whether one agrees that adopting taxes on aerial earners and adopting the retirement age by three years over a 65-year-period is knocking the hell out of Social Security, the actuality is the excerpts appear by WikiLeaks so far do not appearance Clinton accurately calling for cuts in Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid. Indeed, she said the specifics of Simpson-Bowles access can be negotiated. Who knows how a President Hillary Clinton would access the affair of alms programs. But to say that she wants to acutely cut these programs based on the excerpts of her speeches, as we apperceive them appropriate now, is false.
