Sherrod Brown Exposes GOP’s Motives For Deep Entitlement Cuts
"There has been a movement among conservative Republicans of a bit of a distaste for Social Security and Medicare. They’re public programs that are successful, and if it’s proven that these public programs are successful, it sort of undercuts their view that government can’t do anything right. Government has never been late on a social security check in 75 years since its first payment in 1940. We have seen two very successful public programs and there are always efforts to shift costs."

Quote:Congressional Republicans have offered a budget deal that mirrors Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) budget in its draconian cuts to crucial social programs. Raising the Medicare eligibility age, which Brown rejected, is just another way to shift the burden to elderly Americans who risk losing their health insurance or seeing their out-of-pocket costs skyrocket.

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
