Rick Scott doesn't know a single Republican who wants to change Social Security or Medicare.

Democrats use Social Security spending as a campaign issue. Scott was asked about his position on Social Security on "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

The program is set every five years for renewal. Every five years, Social Security is put into politics. Why don't seniors go through that? "Todd, what do you think?"

I don't want to change the medicare program. The benefits of Medicare and Social Security need to be preserved. Scott, from Florida, said that he didn't know anyone who wanted to change that.

According to The Washington Post, Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin suggested that Social Security and Medicare should be discretionary spending programs that are approved by Congress. Johnson doesn't want to eliminate the programs but thinks they are threatened without the fiscal discipline and oversight typically found with discretionary spending, according to a spokesman from his office.

Raising the age to collect Social Security from 67 to 70 years old and raising health insurance premiums for seniors was one of the ideas put forward by top Republicans.

President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama have both called out Republicans on the campaign trail for suggesting cuts and changes.
