Biden and Democrats Have Truly Worked to ‘Beat Medicare’ - WSJ Opinion

Joe Biden’s history of seeking to abolish Medicare goes all the way back to 1975.

Budget experts have confirmed that, as written and without further congressional action, the bill would have sunset the Medicare and Social Security programs, which is exactly what now-President Biden has alleged Republicans want to do.
