Executive Director of Social Security Works Alex Lawson say's Mitch McConnell told the truth? by Nurse Talk published on 2018-11-06T19:35:30Z No one sets the record straight on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid better than Alex Lawson. Alex, the Executive Director of Social Security Works say's Mitch McConnell actually told the truth a couple of weeks ago when he said the Republicans were going to cut the big three. "No doubt about it, they're coming for your Medicare and Social Security, something they've wanted to do since 1935". Republicans love to refer to these programs as "entitlements rather than what they really are "earned benefits".
