Democrats Bust Trump For Rigging Cabinet With Social Security and Medicare Cutters

Senate Democrats are exposing Donald Trump's real agenda by hitting the President-elect hard for filling his cabinet with people who are committed to cutting Social Security and Medicare.

In a statement, Democrats called out Trump for filling his cabinet with people who are committed to doing the opposite of what he promised

Despite President-elect Donald Trump's promise to the American people that he wouldn't cut Social Security and Medicare, he has consistently named nominees to his cabinet with long track records of opposing both vital programs.
Last Friday, the President-elect filled out his cabinet with yet another strident opponent of Social Security and Medicare, Congressman Mick Mulvaney, who in 2011 said to Fox News, "We need to end Medicare as we know it."
Mulvaney joins a long list, including fellow Republican Congressman Tom Price in a proposed Cabinet filled with architects of the "war on seniors."

Incoming Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) vowed that Democrats wouldn't let Trump declare war on seniors and working families.
"If Republicans in the Cabinet or in Congress declare war on seniors and working families, Democrats will not let them win that fight.
Rigging the Cabinet with Medicare and Social Security opponents is wrong, pits republicans against the wishes of the American people, and Democrats in the Senate intend to hold the President-elect to his promise to not cut these vital programs."
