President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address on Tuesday had a ton of dramatic moments but the most memorable one came when he suggested that some members of the GOP wanted to “sunset” Medicare and Social Security. The claim attracted a lot of heckling from Republicans, especially Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene who shouted “liar.”

“Some of my Republican friends want to take the economy hostage — I get it — unless I agree to their economic plans,” Biden said. “All of you at home should know what those plans are. Instead of making the wealthy pay their fair share, some Republicans, some Republicans want Medicare and Social Security to sunset. I’m not saying it’s the majority. Anybody who doubts it, contact my office. I’ll give you a copy of the proposal.”

Since then a lot of fact-checking websites have dove into what Biden was referring to in his speech and they have found that he was alluding to a proposal from Sen. Rick Scott called the ‘Rescue America’ plan.’

What is Rick Scott’s ‘Rescue America’ plan?

The plan by the Florida lawmaker requires all federal legislation to be subject to renewal every five years, which incidentally includes Medicare and Social Security. It is important to note that the plan does not explicitly mention Social Security or Medicare by name. However, Scott has acknowledged that they would be included. He said that said his aim was to “fix” the programs.

On March 27, Scott who was chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee said in a Fox News interview, “No one that I know of wants to sunset Medicare or Social Security, but what we’re doing is we don’t even talk about it.” The 11-point plan to “rescue” America says, “All Americans should pay some income tax to have some skin in the game, even if a small amount. Currently, over half of Americans pay no income tax.” It also says, “All federal legislation sunsets in five years. If a law is worth keeping, Congress can pass it again.”

At a press conference on March 1, in which Scott was present, Sen. Mitch McConnell said, “We will not have as part of our agenda a bill that raises taxes on half of the American people and sunsets Social Security and Medicare within five years. That will not be part of a Republican Senate majority agenda.”
