Keith Olbermann returned to YouTube to attack Republicans for co-operating with Donald Trump despite some initial opposition to him. In his latest video for ‘The Resistance’, Olbermann explains how Republicans in Congress plan to gut social security.
Olbermann explained how social security hawks are already moving to destroy the social safety net. He pointed to a letter from the chief actuary of the Social Security Administration to Republican Congressman Sam Johnson who has introduced a bill to ‘reform’ social security.
“It’s Mr Johnson’s bill that matters here,” Olbermann said. “It explains why the Republicans are abetting the idiot-elect.” Olbermann claimed the letter “explains how deeply Johnson and Paul Ryan and all the other corporate whores intend to plunge the knife into the back of social security.”
Olbermann argued that middle Americans who work hard and voted for Donald Trump ‘are screwed’ as Republicans move to cut social security, Medicaire and Medicaid. Olbermann said that ordinary Americans would be distracted by Trump’s antics while the GOP makes deep cuts.
“They will destroy social security so the rich can get even richer by stealing a billion dollars one dollar at a time,” Olbermann said. “And our part-time president will take a quick look away from his Twitter feed to sign exactly where they tell him to sign.”
