President Biden says the Republicans want to attack Social Security and Medicare if they gain power in Congress. Here’s what the president had to say as he addressed the media Friday at the White House:

“Republican leadership in Congress has made it clear, they will crash the economy next year by threatening the full faith and credit of the United States for the first time in our history, putting the United States in default unless, unless we yield to their demand to cut Social Security and Medicare. You heard that one, right? Y’all heard them say that? That’s what they’re saying. Let me be really clear. I will not yield. I will not cut Social Security. I will not cut Medicare, no matter how hard they work at it. Folks, we know what the Republican Congress will do if they regain power. They’re telling us. They’re being straight up about it. They’re gonna repeal lower prescription drug prices I just signed in the law and raised drug prices.”
